Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEW:

It’s the Ninth that’s the revelation, thanks to the rightness of Heras-Casado’s tempos (never has the mighty first movement sounded so relentless), the intricate, incisive rhythms, the clarity that makes Beethoven’s revolutionary scoring endlessly startling (thrillingly prominent horns and bassoons), and the inspired soloists and chorus.
