Notes and Editorial Reviews

The pure energy in Beethoven‘s scores explodes when the young musicians of the Chamber Orchestra Basel under Giovanni Antonini bring the music to life. Antonini has been one of the Basel ensemble’s regular guest conductors for five years. Time after time, he takes audiences by storm with Il Giardino Armonico. Here, he transfers the baroque ensemble’s exciting manner in undiluted form to the less puristic Chamber Orchestra Basel.

The electrical force of this interpretation, recorded in the superlative acoustical setting of the culture and congress hall in Lucerne, is especially perceptible in the SACD multi-channel version on this hybrid SACD, which presents both SACD stereo as well as CD stereo versions.
