He continued to study conducting at the University of Michigan while pursuing his chemistry degree. The second symphony is thoroughly enjoyable. This is really heart-warming. The finale is wonderful with the same sort of atmosphere that Mendelssohn depicted in his Italian symphony. The playing shows an orchestra in extremely happy form.
Schumann’s Rhenish is a magnificent symphony. In the finale, we hear some of the finest playing in the set so far and, at last, that little extra ingredient of fire and energy as he whips the music towards a superb peroration. John Whitmore, Musicweb-international
