SFS Media Presents

Robert Schumann:
Symphonies Nos. 1 - 4

A premiere album recording from the Grammy-winning Michael Tilson Thomas and San Francisco Symphony.  

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 were hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “taut, keenly shaped and marked by a richly dramatic sensibility.” Produced by the Symphony’s in-house record label SFS Media in the highest quality audio.
