Schumann Symphonies Nos 1 & 3 One of »The best Schumann recordings of the last five years«
»Järvi is always animated and alert to the music’s expressive potential: he achieves the best of both worlds.

The French music magazine Diapason has honoured The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen’s recording of Robert Schumann’s 4th Symphony with its renowned prize, the Diapason d’Or. The award ranks among the three most prestigious independent European awards for recordings of classical music – alongside the German Record Critics’ Award and the British Gramophone Award.
