Core Classics: Schumanns ‘Rhenish’
conductor Nathalie Stutzmann
Schumann Symphony No. 3 ‘Rhenish’
Gleaming copper, jubilant strings and an increased heartbeat in the timpani - listen to the beginning of Robert Schumann's Third and you feel: that is how life force sounds. Schumann wrote the symphony in a single flow of inspiration: in barely more than a month, everything was on paper. A great feeling of happiness flows through this music, with as endearing resting point an intimate slow part.
