Distinctions 4 étoiles de Classica - The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Robert Schumann is about as interesting you can get when it comes to historical musical figures. From his courtship with Clara Wieck and their subsequent marriage, his relationship with the likes of Mendelssohn and Brahms, the bizarre contraptions he built that eventually destroyed his ability to play the piano, and finally his mental instability that ultimately ended his career, Schumann never fails to disappoint. The same can be said of his symphonies, which provide a relatively good cross-section of his compositional output and delineate his growth and his treatment of the medium. Having all four of the symphonies together in a collection such as this one makes such a comparison easier, although the liner notes are somewhat lacking in providing sufficient historical background. The Philharmonia Orchestra (or the New Philharmonia Orchestra for the Fourth Symphony) under the direction of Riccardo Muti does a suitable job of representing Schumann's search for something new to offer the symphony. While the overall execution in these recordings from the late 1970s intonation, articulation, and ensemble -- is good, their sound quality is not always ideal. The lower end of the orchestra is often muddy and indistinct; this is especially true of the Fourth Symphony, whose sound is overly reverberant throughout. In symphonies No. 1 and No. 3, the tympani is extremely aggressive and sticks out inappropriately. While this collection is generally an acceptable introduction to these four great symphonies, listeners may also wish to consider the Cleveland Orchestra's recordings under Szell for a more well-balanced rendition.

In May 2013 a young Italian pianist of genius presented himself at the 14th Van Cliburn competition and won the hearts of music lovers all over the globe with his exceptional playing and unique personality. When he returned to Fort Worth two months later at the invitation of the orchestra to perform the Rachmaninoff's 2nd concerto, his extraordinary and now legendary performance confirmed what many suspected, a talent like this comes once in a generation. This new Schumann recording is remarkable in every way. © Artalinna/Qobuz
