Symphony No. 1, ”Spring”

Add to calendar
Jukka-Pekka Saraste, principal conductor in Cologne for over a decade, knows Schumann like the back of his hand.

The latter’s first symphony came into existence in an unusual way: In late January of 1841, Schumann threw himself into his work with a feverish sort of energy. In just four days, he had plotted out an entire symphony; writing the score itself took just three more weeks. Schumann’s diary reads: “My symphony has given me many moments of happiness and I have more than once thanked the benevolent spirit that helped me complete this magnum opus so effortlessly and in such short time.”
