5.0 out of 5 stars Schumann - Complete Symphonies by Sawallisch, 2 Mar 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schumann: Symphonies Nos. 1-4 (Audio CD)
I bought the original LPs in the seventies and was bowled over then by both the playing and interpretation of these evergreen symphonies by Schumann. I have heard and listened to many performances since and have heard none to equal the Dresdeners in their freshness and vitality. The unique sound of the Dresden Staatskapelle adds greatly to the transparency and energy of Sawallisch's interpretations. I currently own the earlier CD releases but was slightly disappointed by the sound compared to how I remember it on the LPs - some of the warmth seemed to have disappeared, so I am hoping that the Great Recordings release will correct the error of the first remastering. The only gripe I had with the first release and this one is that the very fine account of the Manfred overture, originally included in the LP set, has been lost in transfer to the CDs.
