Notes & Reviews:

"All my concerts and recordings with the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra are characterized by a serious attention to historical playing style, which has up to now normally been associated only with period-instrument orchestras. The central, and most revolutionary, feature of our style is our adoption of the sound of earlier times. We play with the 'pure tone' so much talked about by the old masters before the arrival of 20th century vibrato. This beautiful, warm tone was the normal sound of every orchestra from Bach's time to Mahler's. The honest, expressive 'noble cantilena' of pure tone seems to us crucial in the performance of their music. This recording gives you the opportunity to hear how a modern symphony orchestra can reconnect with its roots and embrace the traditions of the past." -Roger Norrington
