The companion volume to Kubelik’s recordings of Schumann’s first and second symphonies. As with those, there is an air of elegance about these and the slow movement of the ‘Rhenish’ is perhaps without equal. There is also a refulgent ‘Manfred Overture’ to complete this well-filled disc. First release in Australia.
Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, Op. 97 ‘Rhenish’
Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120
Overture: Manfred, Op. 115
