About

This second release of music by Georg Schumann features symphonic works. Schumann, who was the director of the Sing-Akademie in Berlin for many years and a professor of composition at the Prussian Academy of the Arts, is currently being rediscovered as a late romanticist, but during his lifetime he was regarded as a neo-romanticist. The Symphony in F minor is his most monumental instrumental work. What one critic wrote of the symphony of his youth also is above all true here: ‘… how one idea logically develops from the other’. The recording also includes two of Georg Schumann’s overtures. He was able to express all the moods in music – and this is his claim to greatness. After the weighty Prelude to a Drama he wrote a joyous celebration of life in the Lebensfreude overture, a work overflowing with delight in musical performance.
