CD reviews: Tennstedt conducts Beethoven
In May 2015, we released live concert performances of Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony and his Overture to Egmont, conducted by former Principal Conductor and Music Director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Klaus Tennstedt.
Read on for the reviews the disc has received so far...
‘The performance has lovely atmosphere, and movements, not least the bucolic scherzo, characterised to perfection.’
The Sunday Times, 7 May 2015 (subscription only)
‘A visionary performance’
Gramophone Magazine, Editor’s Choice, July 2015
‘Recommended for Beethovenians and Tennstedt disciples alike.’
Michael Quinn, Classical Ear, 8 July 2015
‘Tennstedt here gives a gripping reading of this life-enhancing score and his players respond with equal relish ... Noticeable throughout is the sense of involvement Tennstedt draws from his devoted players, they make the most exquisite sounds’
