Brahms Variations on a theme of Haydn
Schumann Violin Concerto in D minor
Schumann Symphony No. 3 in E flat, Rhenish

Marin Alsop conductor
Patricia Kopatchinskaja violin

Haydn and Schumann’s fascinating influence on Brahms is explored in this exhilarating performance. Schumann’s unjustly neglected Violin Concerto is full of the composer’s personal lyricism and its slow movement is particularly beautiful.

The Rhenish Symphony, the last of the four Schumann wrote, is the finest product from his last great period of happiness in 1850. Its five grand and lyrical movements were completed in less than six weeks and the piece was premiered to great success.
