 Revelatory Schumann May 12, 2013 By John L. (Dearborn, MI) See All My Reviews "I bought this album for Joshua Bell's performance of the Brahms Concerto. I knew nothing about the Schumann concerto. Now I can't stop listening to Bell play it. From what I read and what I hear elsewhere, it is a difficult work to make sound exciting. Bell does. Many people besides Bell play the Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky concertos marvelously, but it is on this piece -- where the violinist must strive to lift it from murkiness -- that Bell shows he is a standout even among those at the top of his profession. The Clevelanders are totally and wonderfully into it; they honor Schumann as beautifully as they did in his symphonies under Szell. As a lover of those symphonies, I find this concerto poignant because it is apparently the last thing Schumann wrote for orchestra. But I can't stay sad for long because it is such a joy to hear Bell play what we now know -- thanks to him -- is Schumann's final masterpiece." Report Abuse
