The first volume of this fascinating series, pairing the four symphonies of Hans Gal and Robert Schumann, has intrigued and delighted listeners.
Volume 2 brings Gal’s final work in the genre – perhaps the great ‘Classical’ symphony of the modern era, deeply connected to the music of Haydn and Mozart – and Schumann’s Second, whose exhilarating narrative was born of personal crisis.
