The Grammy Award-winning team of Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony present a premium edition two-disc recording of the complete symphonies of Robert Schumann, one of the most evocative composers of the Romantic era. Michael Tilson Thomas’s nuanced approach accentuates the tender, simple, and vulnerable side of Schumann’s symphonies, which MTT calls a ”preserve for endangered emotions.” Recorded live, these performances were hailed as ”nothing short of magnificent” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
