Notes & Reviews:

Over the past 30 years, Combattimento Consort Amsterdam has established a strong national and international reputation. The ensemble is famous for the high quality and energy of its performances, and conductor/violinist Jan Willem de Vriend's name is known worldwide. The artistic director of Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, since 2006 De Vriend has been the chief conductor and artistic director of the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. He has been a guest conductor with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic, Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Hague Philharmonic, and Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
De Vriend uses only about 16. De Vriend has definite interpretive ideas that are embodied in strong articulation. His players show they are virtuosos simply by keeping up with him all the time. There are moments that are truly ethereal, as in the Largo middle movement of No. 5. And, as do few others, he makes the hornpipe that closes No. 7 a foot-stomping dance. De Vriend is relatively modest in his use of the oboe additions. All in all, De Vriend offers a "challenging" set, one that forces you to rethink your ideas about this monumental cycle.
