Notes on update #001 of The Classical mixtape.
I am a big fan of John Eliot Gardiner and his Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. Especially the recordings of the Beethoven symphonies. I really like the noisy, fast performed with period instruments in small orchestras. It’s a refreshing contrast to the many big, romantic interpretations that you are used to. They have also recorded a very fine album with the complete symphonies of Robert Schumann.
Also, a new album with the Beethoven cello sonatas performed by Ralph Kirshbaum and Shai Wosner.
