Symphonies by Ferdinand Hiller and Robert Schumann

Composer: Ferdinand Hiller, Robert Schumann,


Soloist: Ronald Lau, piano,


Label: MSR Classics

CD Number: MS 1759

Ferdinand Hiller (1811 – 1885), a contemporary of Robert Schumann (1810 – 1856) while acclaimed for his Symphony at its premiere, rates hardly a footnote today.  Ronaldo Lau’s piano version uncovers a work of contrasting moods and dynamics.  Schumann’s Second Symphony, in this piano version, springs to life, in Theodor Kirchner’s (1823 – 1903) transcription,  and belies the dark times in which Schumann worked on its composition.  

Hiller - Symphony in E Minor, Op. 67 - Allegro energico e con fuoco
