Video of the day: a captivating Schumann Symphony No 4 from Frankfurt

Gramophone Mon 3rd December 2018

Marek Janowski conducts the Frankfurt Radio Symphony in Schumann's Fourth Symphony

The production values of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony's filmed performances are invariably exceptionally high, and their recent performance of Schumann's Symphony No 4 conducted by Marek Janowski is well worth watching.

Janowski made fine recordings of the Schumann symphonies with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for ASV in the late 1980s, but there have been several more recent accounts of the four symphonies which are also highly recommendable, not least Yannick Nézet-Séguin's with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe (DG) and Robin Ticciati's with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (Linn Records).
