Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the London Symphony Orchestra bring their survey of Schumann’s symphonic works to a close with the Overture, Scherzo & Finale.

Dating from 1841, Schumann’s Overture, Scherzo & Finale was originally conceived as a symphony, or ‘symphonette’ as he liked to call it, but having no slow movement he eventually republished it as this three-movement work. The work begins with a graceful and delicate Overture which quickly transforms into a stormy Scherzo. The lyrical trio section that follows provides a welcome contrast before the fast, fugato style Finale brings the work to a rousing close.

This digital-only release is a complement to Gardiner’s two Schumann albums (LSO0818 & LSO0844) on LSO Live.
