“Barenboim has many of the attributes of a major Schumann conductor. [He] gives ample reign to the tremendous high spirits of this Spring Symphony. This is outstanding Schumann playing by any standards.” — Gramophone

Daniel Barenboim leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in the first and final symphonies of Robert Schumann — a fine demonstration of the conservative romantic style, performed with great finesse by the virtuosic Chicago musicians.
