SCHUMANN

Symphony No. 2

“Romancing the cello”… that sums up Dvořák’s cello concerto, considered the greatest ever composed for the instrument. A work of symphonic grandeur and passion, it memorializes a girl he loved but lost with a melody from one of his own songs played in the ethereal high register of the cello. In Schumann’s Symphony, listen for the romantic third movement — with strings singing of yearning — and follow its musical path from darkness to light.

Of Janowski “The results were comparable to what a master restorer of vintage paintings would achieve through his art. Centuries of grime and yellowed varnish were removed, revealing the original colors in all their pristine glory.”
