Schumann: Symphony No. 4

Duration: 34:48

Charles Hazlewood sheds new light on Robert Schumann's Symphony No. 4 in D minor (Op. 120) by exploring the original version of the work, composed in 1841. In the process Charles questions the often quoted statement that Schumann could not orchestrate and explores the innovative way in which the composer shaped the work into a single span of invention. The performances are provided by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Douglas Boyd.
