Description
Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Schumann's birth and his productive years in Dresden (1844–50), this engaging program features repertoire both familiar and novel, including Requiem für Mignon, Op. 98b, Nachtlied, Op. 108, and the premiere of two orchestrations by Schumann scholar Joachim Draheim of pieces from his Bunte Blätter, Op. 99.

"Harding certainly has the measure of the music, finding the happy mean between the dramatic and lyrical impulses of this most romantic of composers. In this he is helped, of course, by the marvelous Dresden Staatskapelle, which seems to breathe this music of the once native son…. The so-called 'Rhenish' is a marvelous work. Harding conducts with a light hand, often emphasizing the rhythmic elements under the singing melodic lines to maintain forward momentum. Even the extraordinary Feierlich movement, while sustained, mysterious, and very powerful, is not allowed to get at all heavy, and it builds most movingly to that glorious B-flat Major fanfare…. The overture to Genoveva, Schumann's solitary opera … is a spritely performance, with the winds and glorious Dresden horns given characterful prominence."—Fanfare

"The recorded sound is excellent and the acoustics in the church are remarkable both for clarity and resonance. The photography gives us a nice look at the orchestra, following the subtleties of Schumann's voice leading with sensitivity."—American Record Guide
