Schumann: Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op 120

The South Birmingham Sinfonia performed this work as part of the Autumn 2015 concert. SBS previously performed this work in Summer 2002.

The Symphony No. 4 in D minor, Op. 120, by Robert Schumann, was first completed in 1841. Schumann heavily revised the symphony in 1851, and it was this version that is usually heard.

The 1851 (revised) version replaces the italian markings with markings in German and is in four movements, usually played following each other without pause.
