These are superb performances of Schumanns symphonies 3 & 4, recorded to the highest standard. It has to be a contender for 1 of the best recordings of Schumanns 3rd & 4th this century so far?. The crystal clear sound, the mix and the overall balance is spot on. A first class performance from this top orchestra and top conductor and the faultless sound quality make this an essential purchase along with the symphonies 1 & 2 previously released to this cd. Only problem is i cant stop listening to them!.
