Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 18th October 2012
The O18C have the same exhilarating zeal now as they did when they made their previous set of Beethoven recordings for Philips in the early 1990s...Brnggen isn't one for attention-seeking effects or eccentricities, but his performances bristle with ideas, making them confrontational in the best sense.

Classical Music, 17th November 2012
Bruggen's Beethoven with his crack European ensemble is again a breath of fresh air ... every bar crackles with energy and delight. Excellent recorded sound, capturing a natural concert hall perspective.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
Brnggen's message, interpreted from uncorrupted texts, gets through, every repeat except one (in the third movement of the Seventh) observed. But he reserves judgement about Beethoven's metronome markings...Brnggen strips (the Ninth) of the overbearing bombast encrusted across generations...This is Brnggen's voyage to the vortex of Beethoven's last symphony. Go with him for a rare emotional encounter.

Sunday Times, 10th March 2013
What makes these new readings so rewarding is the depth and breadth of his conception of Beethoven's sound world, combined with the clarity of period instruments. Older conductors achieved this with modern instruments, but Brnggen's accounts of the purely orchestral symphonies have uncommon integrity.
