Nicholas Sheffo
Fulvue Drive-in, June 2011

Vladimir Jurowski: Orchestra In The Age Of Enlightenment (Idéale Audience/Naxos) follows a terrific Richard Strauss/Maurice Ravel Blu-ray that Jurowski and pianist Helene Grimaud did for the same company recently that I still really enjoyed…

Now Conductor Jurowski is back with a terrific performance of three Beethoven works: Coriolan Overture Op. 62 along with Symponies Nos. 4 & 7 that are among the best versions I have ever heard.  Note how consistent and smart “II. Allegretto” is from Symp. 7.  This only confirms why Jurowski is one of the best conductors in the business and I will look forward to his next works with even higher expectations.  This is definitely some of the best Beethoven on the market and that is not easy, making this my second favorite release on this list.  Extras include trailers and a good booklet on the work.
