Schumann: Symphony No. 4 in D minor Op. 120
First version of 1841 - Breitkopf Urtext ed. by Jon Finson
Robert Schumann composed his D-minor Symphony in 1841, just after completing his Symphony No. 1 in B flat major op. 38. This version remained unpublished during the composer’s lifetime. After a thorough revision in late 1851, the work was given its first performance in Düsseldorf on 3 March 1853 under the composer’s direction. It was published that same year by Breitkopf & Härtel under the opus number 120 as Symphony No. 4.
