1/ A new set of #Schumann symphonies features Christian Thielemann conducting @StaatskapelleDD. As I'd not heard these works for ages, I decided to catch up with a classic set by the same orchestra.

Then things started to get a little crazy.

2/ I must confess that I'd never listened to Wolfgang Sawallisch's classic cycle before. I'd always found Schumann's symphonies stodgy and unappealing, until Sir John Eliot Gardiner's revelatory acounts stripped the scales from my ears and opened my heart to him 20 years ago.
3/ I decided I'd have to re-listen to Gardiner. I also wanted to hear whether period performance practices had influenced more recent Schumann performances on modern orchestras, so well-regarded cycles by @nezetseguin and @kennethwoods went onto my listening list as well.
