ICA Classics is proud to present the first recordings of Pappano conducting two of Schumann's most popular symphonies, No.2 in C major op.61 and No.4 in D minor op.120. Symphony No.2 was sketched out in 1845 but its completion was greatly prolonged by nervous exhaustion which some years later was to decline into mental instability. This personal struggle evokes Beethoven, while the tremendous energy in the work recalls Schubert. Symphony No.4 was composed in 1841 but revised in 1851 (the version heard here) and consists of four continuous movements, an innovation at the time. Pappano conducts his Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia with his customary energy while bringing out the beauty of the orchestra's strings and poignancy of the woodwinds. Delicacy and care over detail as well as bringing out the light and shade of each work are all hallmarks of Pappano's commanding interpretations.
