Schumann’s Second Symphony with Simone Young
Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Chief Conductor Simone Young presents warm, gleaming works by Robert Schumann and Peggy Glanville-Hicks.

Peggy Glanville-Hicks’ Three Gymnopédies are jewels, revealing endless character in just a short space of time.

Written a century earlier, Robert Schumann’s Second Symphony continues the great German symphonic tradition handed down from Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Its shimmering melodies beam with joy and unbridled enthusiasm in a wonderfully delicate reminder of music’s restorative power.
