Hi Jane. Glad you liked the Kreisleriana. It is amazing. I am going to have a listen to the rest of the symphonies as it's a while since I listened. I think I have the Kubelik set on vinyl when it came out as a budget price series years ago, but Ill probably be listening on youtube so I can follow the score on IMSLP as I did last week with no.1.

 

Back anon...

I have come to Schumann only recently - perhaps only in the last year or so. I had heard odd pieces here and there (especially the ubiquitous Traumerie)

Strange how pieces described as "ubiquitous" are ones you never hear involuntary. The only times I've heard Traumerie, apart from when I used to try to play it in tne dim and distant past, is when I've put on a recording of Kinderszenen. The same goes for such other ubiquitous works as The Four Seasons, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, the 1812 Overture or even the Moonlight Sonata. I've been to hundreds of concerts in my time yet can't remember when I last heard any of the above other than on recordings in my collection.
