Notes & Reviews:

Over the last 20 years, Dutch conductor Jan Willem de Vriend has, with enormous passion and enthusiasm, immersed himself in the life and work of Ludwig van Beethoven. Now, de Vriend believes that he is ready to release this series of Beethoven’s symphonies! On this new Hybrid SACD, he is joined by the highly-regarded Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.

"A rendition [of the fifth] that, especially in juxtaposition to the First symphony, reveals the work's revolutionary nature. The first movement blazes, the Andante glides, the scherzo stalks, and the finale becomes a euphoric release of all the previously accumulated tension. The recording's narrow-focused acoustic (albeit with a solid sense of depth) projects the power of the playing... this is a Beethoven symphony disc that had every good reason to be made. You really should hear it." -ClassicsToday
