Robin Ticciati / Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Robert Schumann: The Symphonies album download

Each has had something to contribute, and it seems that musicians are finally starting to get these difficult works - not Beethoven, but not Brahms either - under control. This one by British conductor Robin Ticciati leading the underrated Scottish Chamber Orchestra, is among the best.

Composer: Robert Schumann Conductor: Robin Ticciati Orchestra/Ensemble: Scottish Chamber Orchestra. The conductor and his orchestra toured all four works in concert before recording them in the Perth Concert Hall, and in each symphony there is the sense of careful consideration and total absorption in the music so that not a detail of Schumann’s scoring goes missing.

Schumann: The Symphonies’ sees Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra embark upon their first symphonic cycle together in a programme that they performed in concerts across Scotland. This is music that is very close to Robin Ticciati’s heart; he describes Schumann as one of his favourite composers and has often spoken about how important poetry, colour and story are to Schumann’s music. In October 2014 Robin Ticciati will enter his sixth season as Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He began his tenure as Music Director of Glyndebourne Festival Opera in May 2014.

Artist: Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Robin Ticciati, Robert Schumann. Robin Ticciati’s approach to Schumann’s four symphonies is like that of an expert make-up artist who cherishes every last aspect of the faces he works on. The highlighting of features is so pronounced, so exceptional, that the effect on a familiar face is wonderful and yet not always natural in detail. Schumann’s symphonies have long suffered brickbats about the thickness of their orchestration, and Ticciati dispels these claims with real finality

This recording was met with critical acclaim: it was named in The Sunday Times' 'Classical Album in the 100 Top Albums of 2014', in the 'Best Albums of 2014' by Da Volkskrant, a 'Critics' Choice Pick of 2014' by Andrew Ford on ABC Radio and won a 2015 'Discovery' Classic Edison Award.

Robin Ticciati’s Schumann cycle is the third complete set to appear in the last six months, following Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s version with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe for Deutsche Grammophon and Simon Rattle’s with the Berlin Philharmoniker on the orchestra’s own label. It’s also by a considerable margin the best of them, in fact the finest set on disc since David Zinman’s on Arte Nova a decade ago, and perhaps the most impressive thing that Ticciati has done on disc so far. Every bar in these urgent performances with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra seems alive and full of interest
