Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Grammy Award-winning team of Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony releases a premium edition two-disc recording of the complete symphonies of Robert Schumann, one of the most evocative composers of the Romantic era. Michael Tilson Thomas’ nuanced approach accentuates the tender, simple, and vulnerable side of Schumann’s symphonies, which MTT calls a “preserve for endangered emotions.” Recorded live, these performances of Schumann’s symphonies are hailed as “nothing short of magnificent” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Produced by the Symphony’s in-house record label SFS Media in the highest quality audio, and packaged in a deluxe 82-page hard-bound book.

All works recorded in PCM 192 kHz/24-bit audio live
