CBSO: Edward Gardner Cancelled
When Edward Gardner and the CBSO play Schubert together, the critics go wild. "Sensationally fine" declared one. "Full of the joys of spring" said another. But why wait till they appear on CD when you can hear them playing the delightful music live in the beautiful surroundings of Birmingham Town Hall? From life-affirming energy of the teenage Schubert's First Symphony to the irresistibly catchy Rosamunde music, it's just tune after gloriously hummable tune.
