BBC CHOICE

5 starsPerformance / 5 stars Sound

'The Adagio of Symphony No. 2 is beautifully done, with a coda that really tugs at the heartstrings...the interpretations...will reward repeated hearing.'
BBC Music Magazine 

  5 stars '...the finest set on disc [in] a decade...and perhaps the most impressive thing that Ticciati has done on disc so far... hearing these symphonies in such superbly played, convincingly Schumannesque performances is irresistible.' The Guardian

'No. 9 Classical Album in the 100 Top Albums of 2014' The Sunday Times

'No. 23 in the Best Albums of 2014' Da Volkskrant

Winner: 2015 'Discovery' Classic Award Edison

Critics' Choice Pick of 2014: '...no new release has given me greater pleasure in 2014.' Andrew Ford, ABC Radio

'This is one of the best Schumann symphony cycles to come my way in a very long time, maybe even ever...' Fanfare

 

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.

Symphony No. 1 'Spring', blazes and sparkles with joy, Symphony No. 2 finds its way carefully through to the safe haven of its final movement, the much-loved Symphony No. 3 ‘Rhenish' moves with huge ease and assurance to a resonant and joyful conclusion. Symphony No. 4 is radical in the way each movement attacks the start of the next movement with barely a pause, and in its minute-and-a-half-long, shimmering and horn-call-filled transition to the finale. Under Ticciati and the SCO it is magnificent, the radical, soaring, disturbing and exhilarating symphony Schumann intended.

The SCO's smaller forces bring a lightness of touch and a clarity to the counterpoint; under Ticciati they achieve a sense of movement that no previous recording has.

BBC Music Magazine
'Building A Library' Recommended Recording of Schumann's Symphony No. 2


Classica
«On apprécie d'autant plus Ia finesse et Ia musicalité de certains pupitres (clarinette, hautbois) qui donnent véritablement un supplément d'âme à leur lecture et n'enferment pas Ia musique dans des éclairages monochromes ou bien, à l'inverse, dans une démonstration purement virtuose.»

BBC Music Magazine
Top Recommendation: 'I'd opt for Ticciati, whose exhilarating Rhenish has all the makings of a modern classic.'

#9 ‘Classical Record of the Year’: ‘In a competitive year, Ticciati’s lithe, youthful accounts of the great works produced the trump card.’
