Info for Schumann: Complete Symphonic Works



The complete edition of Robert Schumann's symphonic works with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne under Heinz Holliger is now available as a 6 album set.

Alongside the Symphonies Nos 1-4, this edition comprises the D minor Symphony in the original version, as well as the Symphony in G minor, "Zwickau". In addition, there are the Overture, Scherzo & Finale, the overtures (Manfred / Hermann and Dorothea / Genoveva / The Bride of Messina / Julius Caesar / Scenes from Goethe's Faust) and all solo works with orchestra: the Violin Concerto and the Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra (Patricia Kopatchinskaja), the Cello Concerto (Oren Shevlin), the Piano Concerto (Dénes Várjon), the two Konzertstücke for Piano (Alexander Lonquich) and the Konzertstück for Four Horns (horn section of the WDR Symphony Orchestra). This selection of works creates one of the most comprehensive recorded editions of Schumann's symphonic works.

The Schumann specialist Heinz Holliger successfully proves, contrary to common preconceptions, Robert Schumann's great art of orchestral instrumentation.

"...one of the most attractive collections of this music" (Gramophone)

"As a conductor, the versatile musician Heinz Holliger emerges as a knowledgeable Schumann expert who, alongside the excellent WDR Orchestra, makes everything to which the composer aspired shine, gleam and glow: simply beautiful music of the vibrant and current romantic spirit, unfractured but carefully thought out." (Das Orchester)

“Holliger’s profound empathy for Schumann shines through these outstanding performances which sustain a miraculous transparency of orchestral texture without sacrificing expressive intensity.” (BBC Music Magazine) „Selten hatte man das Gefühl, ein Dirigent könnte einem Komponisten so in den Kopf schauen wie Heinz Holliger Robert Schumann.” (Fono Forum)
