Rattle’s Schumann.


Simon Rattle conducts Schumann.

For the Berliner Philharmoniker, Schumann’s symphonies have always been part of their core repertoire. And so it only stands to reason that the Berliner Philharmoniker should launch their own recordings label with the complete cycle of the four Schumann symphonies.

For Sir Simon Rattle, Robert Schumann is “the echt Romantic”. And in fact, the exuberance of the Romantic period, its passion and its melancholy can be heard with unique intensity in Schumann’s music to this day.

The presentation of the product, its packaging and special features, go far beyond what standard CD’s offer, because it features a linen exterior and other content to celebrate the first music on this label.

The music is, of course, timeless and historical in it beauty and uniqueness:
