If you’re in the market for a new Beethoven Second superbly played and recorded, I can think of none better than the current de Billy offering.
The choral and orchestral music [of Brahms’s Rinaldo] is gorgeous, some of Brahms’s best, from a composer who wrote magnificently for chorus and orchestra…
The chorus and orchestra…are excellent, as is Oehms’s multichannel recording.
Here then is a better than decent Beethoven Second, and recommended for that. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review
