Robert Schu­mann. This Schu­mann sym­phony cycle is not a con­cert re­cord­ing but is es­pe­cially per­formed for the cam­era which is al­low­ing more tech­nic­al and cre­at­ive free­dom in visu­al­iz­ing the per­form­ances. The ven­ue is a former in­dus­tri­al space on the har­bour side in Bre­men, the Pier2, which un­der­lines the work­shop at­mo­sphere and the eager­ness to ex­per­i­ment per­fectly.
