 Schumann With Broad Shoulders December 4, 2011 By robert jones (scott depot, WV) See All My Reviews "My first Schumann experience was the old RCA Boston Symphony recording of the Spring Symphony. Since then, nothing else would do. Then, the Second by the Detroit on Mercury, the Fourth by the San Francisco on RCA. I'm still looking for MY third, the ideal Third. The sound of the Philharmonia and Muti's broad, unhurried detailed reading are the most successful combining of those classic recordings listed above. The Third we all somehow want to sound like Siegfried's Rhine Journey. This does." Report Abuse
