Overview

Who would have believed Belgian fortepianist and conductor Jos van Immerseel had it in him to turn in an exciting set of Beethoven's symphonies and overtures, especially with a a period instrument chamber orchestra? But these are indeed very exciting recordings. Listen to the hunting horns in the "Third"'s Trio or the charging trumpets in the "Seventh"'s closing Allegro con brio. Listen to Immerseel mold the phrasing in the "Second"'s Larghetto or coda of the "Third"'s Marcia funebre -- it's genuinely thrilling. In these performances, one gets a real sense of the warmth, humor, and compassion that mark the best Beethoven recordings. The recorded sound is immediate and translucent.
