In John Eliot Gardiner’s epoch-making Schumann recordings for Archiv Produktion – all collected here, including his “wonderful” (BBC Music Magazine) reading of Das Paradies und die Peri – the composer’s music is “brought to incomparable physical life with glowing period instruments under inspirational direction and perfectly recorded ... Gardiner has a seemingly effortless command of long-term architecture and captures light and shade as well as intimacy and grandeur” (Gramophone).
