|The Schumann Project|
|All the Beethoven symphonies have been released on CD, and many Beethoven cycles have been presented throughout the world - the response has been overwhelming. What follows now is the search for new challenges. What is big and interesting enough to follow Beethoven? The answer is: Schumann. |
Naturally, thinks Paavo Järvi. »Everything that came after Beethoven is closely linked to him. But there is also an excessive, neurotic range of expression in Schumann that is worlds away from Beethoven.«
All the composer's symphonies will be recorded on SACD, and the orchestra has already been invited to New York, Japan, and the Schumann Festival in Düsseldorf.
The project was launched in 2009
The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and Paavo Järvi presented their interpretation of the 'Rhenish' Symphony in December 2009, with two subscription concerts in Bremen, at the Berlin and Cologne Philharmonies, and at Baden-Baden's Festspielhaus, delighting audiences and critics alike.
Following the concerts, the foundation was laid for the Schumann symphony cycle on CD with the recording of the 'Rhenish' at the Funkhaus Berlin.
