About

More than 200 years after its premiere at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Isabelle Faust, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Martin Helmchen have congenially mastered the artistic challenge of Beethovenís gemstone. Under Herbert Blomstedtís sensitive direction, the soloists unite chamber musical intimacy together with virtuoso sophistication Ė and prove once again that the Triple Concerto is an unduly underestimated, much too rarely programmed masterpiece.

With the composer's Fifth Symphony, Blomstedt succeeds in achieving an entirely new perspective of this work. In the culmination of his three-year, intensive reenactment of Beethovenís cosmos, the impressive sound that characterizes the Swedish grand seigneur's conducting is heralded by transparency rather than showmanship, relevance instead of pathos, and tenderness in place of sentimentality.
