Zubin Mehta has had a long association with the Vienna Philharmonic, conducting them for his first ever recording for Decca (Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony – Decca Eloquence 461 3572) and returning often to conduct them both in their home city and on tour. Collected here for the first time are his complete Decca recordings of Schumann – the four symphonies as well as two of the overtures, all played with immense verve and with a gloriously burnished sound from the Vienna Philharmonic.
