Notes & Reviews:

"...[This] music is absolutely glorious - if you haven't heard it you don't know Schumann. Just about every number is a lyric gem: try the opening orchestral introduction and contralto and soprano solos and see if you're able to resist....Gardiner and his virtuoso, highly-preened forces...display the expected Gardiner virtues of poise, flawless singing, and impeccable conductorial preparation..." -Ashby, ARG
