“To me, Schumann is the perfect essence of everything one understands by the word Romanticism. His music is deeply passionate and communicative, but it never descends into self pity. I don’t think there are many more moving compositions than the Adagio of Schumann’s Second Symphony. Unlike Mahler, he never gets caught up with himself emotionally, but the music he produces is like a crystal-pure extract. It is one of the loveliest symphonies I know, and one of the most difficult to perform”, says Sir Simon Rattle.
