Notes and Editorial Reviews

Recorded live at David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, NYC.

REVIEW:

From the opening bars of Beethoven’s Fifth there is intense conviction. Not only in the fiery playing, though that is extraordinary, but in the way that van Zweden elicits usually unheard details of scoring and surprising rhythms which, though certainly in the score, I had never heard before.
