Okay, you donít like Gardinerís or Wallfischís Schumann, how about telling what cycle you do like then?

Nezet-Seguin, Bernstein, Zinman

Have you heard Gardiner? He might change your mind.

Yep, Iíve tried to get into Schumannís symphonies, but I just canít. I do like his chamber music and the solo piano works Iíve heard, though. I feel he does better in small forms.

I like Szellís cycle, but I donít really think highly of Schumannís symphonies in general.

I side with Jessop on this.  I found Sawallisch to be a bit of a bore.  And most recordings of Schumann's symphonies to be honest...The only ones I feel positive about are Kubelik and Gardiner.

Dreadful choice, but I hope you are enjoying it :)

One of my favorite works from Langgaard. Absolutely exquisite.
