Philippe Herreweghe leads the Orchestre des Champs Elysees in a performance of Schumann's Overture, Scherzo and Finale at the Church of San Francesco in Locarno, Switzerland. Herreweghe founded this orchestra in 1991. He wanted an ensemble dedicated to the performance of 19th-century music on period instruments.
