"Blomstedt's Beethoven seems 'right': tempi are never too fast or too slow, but never staid, and phrasing is alive with rhythmic energy and cumulative momentum. His Leipzig players give their all- the strings in particular have a glorious burnished gold sonority" Five Stars ClassicalMusic
"The playing of the Gewandhausorchester is indecently good: how refreshing to hear a full-size orchestra playing these pieces, the weight of sound thrilling in places. Blomstedt doesn't do anything radical; there's no straining for effect or tinkering with tempi or dynamics. He just plays what's written, brilliantly so" The Arts Desk
