BEETHOVEN
David Zinman conducts Beethoven [symphonies & piano concertos]
Yefim Bronfman (piano) Christian Tetzlaff (violin) / Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, David Zinman

[ Sony Classical Masters / 11 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Monday 10 November 2014

"Zinman's recording packs a fair punch and the Eighth is exhilaratig in the extreme. All repeats are played in both symphonies; the recordings are excellent and if your current library preference is for one of the modern-instrument 'greats', Zinman at super-budget price will prove both instructive and refreshing."
- Pick (Good CD Guide on Symphonies 3 & 4)

"Whatever you think of the conducting and piano playing, this is worth it just for the sound. But I consider the conducting and pianist to have given us the best reading yet. Tops my list of LvB concerto CDs and I've heard plenty"
(CDUniverse.com on Piano Concertos 3 & 4)

"This is what Beethoven is supposed to sound like! Powerful performances that grab your attention from the outset." - MEL (Marbecks on the Overtures)
