Notes and Editorial Reviews

David Zinman's complete Beethoven symphony cycle has garnered rave reviews worldwide. It is the world-premiere modern-instrument recording of the New Barenreiter Edition. This single disc of two of the most popular symphonies is a great introduction to the series. The Zinman recordings of the Beethoven symphonies won the German Record Critics' prize in 1999. Under the leadership of David Zinman, the Tonhalle Orchestra has undertaken a number of successful concert tours throughout Europe, the U.S. and Japan. In addition to concerts at home and a busy touring schedule, the orchestra and Zinman are devoting increasing time to recording projects.
