Quote from: bhodges on April 07, 2007, 08:52:27 AMI really need to hear these, since I am inclined to like HIP readings in general (and like Gardiner's work), and I like all four symphonies. Most of the versions I've heard, including Alan Gilbert and the NY Philharmonic in the Third Symphony last week, are more pumped up, but I can well imagine that they'd be effective done much leaner.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on April 07, 2007, 08:51:00 AMRec, please. A Schumann specialist says Philadelphia / Ormandy Rudolf Serkin, which is probably the way I'll go. I have CO of Europe / Harnoncourt Argerich and surprisingly I don't care for it, it hasn't sold the piece to me yet...
Quote from: SonicMan on April 07, 2007, 11:08:32 AMBruce - I'll certainly second Gurn's opinion on the Gardiner set (shown below) - just outstanding and revelatory w/ the orchestration used; however, a full price offering
Quote from: Novitiate on April 07, 2007, 01:50:08 PMThese days, I reach for Rubinstein whenever I want to listen to ['Aufschwung'].
Quote from: Holden on April 07, 2007, 02:11:46 PMSchumann is probably not a composer that one discovers as a newbie to classical music. Whether this is because there are no really famous/beautiful tunes (Traumerei excepted) like Chopin composed, or, hugely epic and famous works like the LvB 9th that everyone seems to know a little bit of, is hard to say. However, once you kick into his unique world of tonal colour you're hooked for life.
Quote from: lukeottevanger on April 07, 2007, 08:26:46 AMSolo piano works and the lieder Gurn! These are his two main areas of activity and he excelled in both more than any other. I will not be kept quiet!!
Quote from: George on June 24, 2007, 04:27:51 PMI have had much trouble getting into Schumann, but I will continue to try. Kresleriana and "Scenes from Childhood" clicked immediately however.

Quote from: Harry on April 07, 2007, 08:15:47 AMHis Symphonies, and SQ, and of course his piano music. Schumann has not composed that many things I dislike.He is much under valued, I think, and without reason.
Quote from: quintett op.57 on June 25, 2007, 04:43:46 AMI prefer his chamber and piano music. His SQ are unfairly neglected in my opinion. I love his 3rd piano trio and his cello concerto is a fantastic masterpiece.

Quote from: quintett op.57 on June 25, 2007, 01:20:47 AMHave you heard his Andante & Variations for 2 pianos, 2 cellos & 1 horn?It's the third time I give this link. I'm surprised no one seems to be interested.
