Wonderful review of the Schumann symphonies in the famous FORBES MAGAZINE!
...The result was very, very pleasing. At first I thought: Well, these symphonies always sound pretty darn good, don’t they!?” No, they don’t. Not as good as this. What great fun #morninglistening this turned out to be. Engaging and punchy, they sound fresh and airy and listening to them reminded me a bit of the joy I felt when listening to the Paavo Järvi/Bremen Beethoven or Thomas Dausgaard’s Schubert with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. The First and Fourth Symphonies are particularly happy: The strings shimmer and flitter, the ensemble word is precise, and every member of the orchestra sounds as though they are involved, lively, and eager… which contrasts nicely to a general sense of drabness in too many other recordings.
