 Well-Done Performances October 31, 2015 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "I am listening to the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra play Schumann’s symphonies. The music is light and airy, substantial and significant. The interpretations of the music are sure-footed and secure. The first symphony is well-performed as are the rest of the symphonies. The sound quality is excellent; you get the big picture of the music, as well as the individual performances in the music. The pizzicato of the violins during the fourth movement of the first symphony is precise and elegant. The performances are straight forward, demonstrating quiet tenderness on the one hand, and bold strokes of loud demonstrations of sound on the other hand. All said, I highly recommend this music to audiophiles with a penchant for the music of Schumann." Report Abuse
