Minnesota Orchestra + Osmo Vanska = Perfect 10, x 2 !

Posted at 9:55 PM on September 9, 2008 by John Birge

Kudos to Osmo Vanska and the Minnesota Orchestra!

Their new Beethoven CD gets a perfect 10 for performance (plus another perfect 10 for recording quality) from David Hurwitz at classicstoday.com. He writes:

"Brilliantly engineered, utterly natural sonics in all formats provide the finishing touch on a Beethoven cycle that stands with Barenboim's as a modern reference edition, and that features a Seventh that just may top them all."

This is one of the most glowing reviews I've read of any classical CD!
