5.0 out of 5 stars Vibrant and really complete, 23 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Schumann: Complete Symphonies; Das Paradies und die Peri (DG Collectors Edition) (Audio CD)
This Schumann/Gardiner box is really inspiring and you shure get the complete symphonies (including the non Op. number 'Zwickau' and the Mahler arrangment of the 4th.).

Plus you get the Konzerstuck for four hornes & Orchestra, Overture Op.52 and 3 choral pieces:

1. The Requiem für Mignon aus Goethes "Wilhelm Meister", Op.98b for Soloists, Chorus and Orchestra,

2. The Nachtlied "Quellende, schwellende Nacht", Op.108 for Chorus and Orchestra and

3. Tthe Persian theme oratorio 'Paradies und die Peri (Paradise and Peri) that is not commonly know.

On these three you can hear the always sharp Monteverdi Choir, the soloits Christoph Prégardien, Barbara Bonney and others.

The Orchestre Revolutionaire and Romantic plays very fine and you get a really vibrant reading of the symphonies and their german dance-like motifs.

If you're fond of Schumann and dont have reserves on Gardiner, this box has a comprehensive amount of works of this gifted composer.

The concertos could be included to complete the orchestral pack.

Recomended.
