  Site review by Polly Nomial Today 03:32 pm

As with the superb cycle from these forces, Jarvi & the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie of Bremen return to Beethoven to present six of his overtures (his "best" if one slips into marketing speak!) The shortest offering, The Creatures of Prometheus, comes first and is imbued with the same ... more
