Simon Rattle conducts Schumann’s “Paradise and the Peri”

Robert Schumann’s Paradise and the Peri is one of the works that Simon Rattle would take with him to the proverbial “desert island”. It is music full of inspiration and beauty; in addition, there is probably no other choral work that exudes the spirit of German Romanticism as intensely. In this recording from 2009 it is presented by Sir Simon, an outstanding ensemble of soloists and the Berliner Rundfunkchor.
