Notes & Reviews:

Now part of the popular hmGold series, this classic recording from the harmonia mundi archives is available again at mid-price. As played by the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées led by Philippe Herreweghe, Robert Schumann's consummately Romantic symphonies are given light-hearted and insightful performances.

The Guardian
Herreweghe's account of [the Rhenish] is everything a period-instrument Schumann performance should be - full of muscular, energetic playing, with every fleck of colour in the orchestration thrillingly clear...But in the first, the Spring Symphony, Herreweghe sticks religiously to the metronome markings that Schumann put in the score, and the performance never takes off.
