But the other cycle is owned by Warner, not Universal.

Which one?  This is his third recording of the cycle.  He recorded it with Chicago for DG and then with the Staatskapelle Berlin for Teldec, now Warner.  The Teldec/Warner cycle is the bomb.

Oh well then I guess it is just unlucky coincidence then.

The Teldec.  Because I wanted to hear not only Barenboim but with that orchestra in particular.

The second is quite good in my view. Barenboim being a good conductor unlike so much of his recorded work.

While watching the original version from 1989 of The Lion King, I again note that Herr Hans Zimmer lifted part of Schumann's Symphony #2 (the Third Movement) for several dramatic scenes.

NO credit to Schumann at the end!


Anyway, I came across this televised performance, when I was showing Mrs. Cato where the music has come from:

"Meet Miss Ruth Sherwood, from Columbus, Ohio, the Middle of the Universe!"

From Daniel Hogan, violinist:

QuoteCouldn't have asked for a more fulfilling, exciting and rewarding start to 2023, recording a piece as close to my heart as Schumann's extraordinary Violin Concerto 🎻 in @abbeyroadstudios with my incredible friend @laurechanviolin and my wonderful friends in the Sinfonia Perdita, especially our amazing guest leader @eunsleyviolin ❤️

An amazing experience recording for the first time and I'm so proud of what we achieved over 3 intense days, I believe we really did justice for such a special work. Stay tuned for the release and I cannot wait to share more!


I know that some people do not find Schumann's Violin Concerto very compelling, but perhaps it depends upon the performance (?).
