Schumann: The Paradise & The Peri / Giulini, RAI SO

Album Summary

>Schumann, Robert : Das Paradies und die Peri (Paradise and the Peri), for soloists, chorus & orchestra, Op. 50
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The composer himself thought this oratorio was one of his best works; his contemporaries held it in high esteem and it received more than 50 performances in ten years. Yet Schumann's The Paradise and the Peri is virtually unknown today. No doubt this recording, featuring one of the most renowned conductors of the 20th century, should spark renewed interest.
