Violin Concerto & Double Concerto
- (BRAHMS / SCHUMANN / NURNBERGER SYMPHONIKER / SHELL)
- Format: CD
This first CD by violinist Erik Schumann on Berlin Classics finds Mr. Schumann with brother Mark and the Nürnberg Symphony Orchestra under Alexander Shelley's baton playing the Johannes Brahms's Violin Concerto and Double Concerto. The lean string section reflects the orchestra of Brahms's day, giving a natural, lucid sound image of the Brahms concertos. The harmony between the two instruments in the Double Concerto epitomizes the close relationship between the Schumann brothers, who also make chamber music together with brother Ken and Liisa Randalu as the Schumann Quartett.
