Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of today’s most sought-after conductors, Jaap van Zweden was named recipient of Musical America’s Conductor of the Year Award in 2012. He has been Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra since 2008, and is also Honorary Chief Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and Radio Chamber Philharmonic (having been Chief Conductor from 2005–2011). In September 2012 he took up the post of Music Director for the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, with an initial contract of four years. This new disc from Challenge Classics showcases Bruckner’s impetuous Symphony No. 6, which the composer himself considered his “keckste,” or “boldest.” One of today’s most sought-after conductors, Jaap van Zweden was named recipient of Musical America’s Conductor of the Year Award in 2012.
