For Simon Rattle, Robert Schumann is "the echt Romantic." And in fact, the exuberance of the period, its passion and its melancholy can be heard with unique intensity in Schumann's music to this day. For the Berliner Philharmoniker, Schumann's symphonies have always been part of their core repertoire. The 1953 Wilhelm Furtwängler recording in particular has attained cult status. And so it only stands to reason that the Berliner Philharmoniker should launch their Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings label with a cycle of the four Schumann symphonies.

Here the symphonies appear as a limited vinyl collector's edition, which includes a voucher for a high-res download of the four symphonies. The vinyl collector's edition (linen box with 36-page hardcover booklet) is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide.

The 180-gram virgin vinyl pressing meets the highest audiophile standards.

Recorded live at the Berlin Philharmonie in February und November 2013
