"Schumann's "Rhenish" Symphony, the Symphony No. 3 in E flat major, Op. 97, is so called because it was written in the fall of 1850 during the composer's tenure as conductor at Düsseldorf on the famous Rhine river. In a letter to the publisher N. Simrock in 1851 Schumann claimed that the history and spirit of that noble river and its people were running through his mind as he composed the work." - AMG.

Rich, warm, full lush sound but with strong dynamics and detail. Individual instruments are highly defined and are surrounded by "air" and presence. A wide and deep soundstage with strong imaging.
Some audible surface noise - mostly "crackles" and occasional "ticks" - are present randomly on quiet passages.
