ALBUM TITLE: Schumann
WORKS: Symphonies Nos 1-4; Manfred Overture
PERFORMER: LSO/Yondani Butt
CATALOGUE NO: NI 7099 (2011-12)
Solid playing from the LSO fails to rescue these performances from sounding laboured. A disappointingly comatose account of the Spring Symphony saps the music of all its youthful energy.
