Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the year of Claudio Abbado's 80th birthday (June 26th), this album celebrates a true legend of the world of classical music.

Claudio Abbado's interpretation of the Second Symphony is his first recording of a Schumann symphony for DG.

The noble Genoveva and stirring Manfred overtures are exalted additions to this album.

About his Second as performed at the Lucerne Easter Festival, the Neue Zurcher Zeitung extolled Abbado's reading as of the purest beauty, while Berlins Der Tagesspiegel found Abbado's way with the symphony liberating.

Recorded at Vienna's Musikverein in November 2012.
