Blomstedt/Beethoven CD Box set: The latest reviews

Posted on September 14, 2017

“Rarely have Beethoven’s symphonies sounded so stringent, so powerfully fluid, and so filled with tension. […] An exemplary cycle of recordings.”  Attila Csampai, Crescendo

 

“Blomstedt and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig play Beethoven with a tonal beauty and with a resoluteness that makes these incomparable recordings unassailable as a refernece standard.” HR2 Kultur

 

“Exceptionally good”  theartsdesk.com

 

Herbert Blomstedt’s Beethoven testament is overall coherent, natural and immensely rhetoric. The music flows continuously with a vivid pulsation and is always admirably transparent. The rapid movements are fresh, with splendid rhythmic bounce, while the slow movements have warmth and are strikingly beautiful. The orchestral playing is of high quality, and the recorded sound is very good.”  Pizzicato
