From the dramatic first trumpet-call which awakens the frozen landscape, the First Symphony is a celebration of Spring. It moves through the season and a gruff folksong Scherzo until finally a jubilant conclusion dances into summer.
Desperate, heartfelt and elegant, the Manfred Overture opens with an urgent impetus that only increases through the work, displaying the intense strife which lies ahead for its protagonist.
Schumann’s Third is one of the composer’s most impressive, painting a euphoric picture of the German Rhineland in broad Beethovenian style and closing with an exhilarating finale.
“… a perfectly sprung ‘Spring’ Symphony, Schumann’s pulsing rhythms so bracingly defined, the melodies singing out.” - The Arts Desk
“A sweet finale to Gardiner's memorable Schumann cycle.” - Bachtrack
“Gardiner remains one of the great Schumann interpreters, wonderfully alert to the music’s volatility and rigour” - The Guardian
