GRAMOPHONE Editor`s Choice Awards Issue 2009
Herreweghe is a specialist in Renaissance and Baroque Music and has received many awards. He is recording a series of the works of Beethoven with Pentatone and his CDs of Symphonies 1 & 3 and 5 & 8 have previously been released.
“Herreweghe, Philippe and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic produce some really fine playing here, and they have been quite beautifully recorded.” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
“Beethoven always knew what he wanted in terms of pacing. Herreweghe and his expert band not only obey his tempi, they do so most artistically as well. Excellent indeed.” GRAMOPHPONE
