Peggy Glanville-Hicks’ Three Gymnopédies are jewels, revealing endless character in just a short space of time.  

Written a century earlier, Robert Schumann’s Second Symphony continues the great German symphonic tradition handed down from Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Its shimmering melodies beam with joy and unbridled enthusiasm in a wonderfully delicate reminder of music’s restorative power.


With Simone Young’s great passion for the composers, these works combine for performances of delightful exuberance and brilliance. Prepare to be swept off your feet.
