Schumann's Symphony No. 2 has moments of such gorgeous song -- though no words -- that the strings of the orchestra can feel for a moment like the world's greatest opera stars. Heart-melting music from Amsterdam.

Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide Rafi R. of Philadelphia, PA correctly id'd the performance of Sir John Eliot Gardner and the English Baroque Soloists as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 2.
