Schumann's Symphony No. 2 expresses a journey of redemption like perhaps no other symphony. It begins in the depths of Schumann's physical and mental breakdown of 1842, and ends in grateful thanks for his recovery. Whatever tragedies Schumann experienced later, this piece is a marker of a happier time, though it reminded Schumann of "dark days." We'll talk all about it this week on Sticky Notes! Recommended recordings: Leonard Bernstein, New York Philharmonic, George Szell, Cleveland Orchestra
