Schubert’s marvellous ‘Unfinished’, Mendelssohn’s ‘Italian’ and Schumann’s ‘Rhenish’ Symphonies are only some of the highlights included in this Romantic selection of sublime symphonies. High drama, poetic imagery and the highly individual musical language of each composer make these works central to the Western musical tradition. While both respecting and challenging Classical conventions, Mendelssohn, Schubert and Brahms created truly Romantic and highly expressive symphonies which went beyond Beethoven’s powerful example. Alongside these popular masterpieces, some rarities by Reinecke, Raff and Spohr complete this versatile collection.
