Mikko Franck conducts Schumann’s “Paradise and the Peri”

It was one of the great choral works of the 19th century: Robert Schumann’s Paradise and the Peri. The piece has everything that makes up a grandiose, Romantic vocal work: effective choral scenes, lyrical, lieder-like solo numbers, and an instrumental ensemble that shows Schumann at the height of his orchestration skills. The Berliner Philharmoniker perform the work under the baton of Mikko Franck, who is standing in for Simon Rattle.
