                         Editor’s Choice
“One of the most cerebral of conductors, Philippe Herreweghe always guarantees an intelligent approach and that’s in evidence again here. He keeps to beethoven’s metronome markings, strictly obeying the letter of the score. Not that this results in a diminution of power: quite the opposite. As so often, from discipline comes interpretative freedom…. Excellent indeed.”

Nalen Anthony


“The high resolution sound on this PentaTone SACD is exemplary. The soundstage is wide and deep with a clarity and presence that nearly duplicates a live performance. The strings and woodwinds have a naturalness of tone that complements Herreweghe’s lovely interpretation of these two superb symphonies."  *****

Mike Birman

Audiophile Audition

“Herreweghe’s Beethoven carries authority….This current release consists of authoritative accounts of Symphonies No. 2 in D Major, Op. 36 and No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68, the “Pastorale.” Beethoven himself would have been pleased with the results."

Dr Phil Muse

Atlanta Audio Society

“Philippe Herreweghe and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic produce some really fine playing here, and they have been quite beautifully recorded.”
