Symphony No 2

Schumann wrote his second symphony from the piano, at a furious pace, in 1845. That energy completely permeates some of the movements, but as always there are also melancholic passages, so typical of the tormented composer who would end his life in a mental hospital.

Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s first guest conductor Christoph Eschenbach, who turned 80 in February, has known his Schumann since he was a piano-playing boy in Breslau in the 1940s. He can draw from the rich experiences of a long life in this performance.
