“…Throughout the project there is no question that the Zurich Tonhalle Orcehstra play particularly well, while the Arte Nova engineers have produced an atmospheric acoustic and a suitably opulent sound quality.” -MUSICWEB-INTERNATIONAL.COM
“It takes a mighty fine orchestra to capture the full brilliance, never mind all the notes, in such big Richard Strauss epics as the resplendent Sinfonia Domestica…David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchester Zurich deliver a beautifully poised performance.” -THE SCOTSMAN
“Recommended to enthusiasts and doubters alike.” -BBC MUSIC
7CD set of Richard Strauss orchestral works! All recent digital recordings made 2000-2003. Born in 1936, American conductor David Zinman has risen to the pinnacle of his career in the last decade. After bringing the Baltimore Symphony to premier status, he became musical director of the Aspen Music Festival and then took the helm of Zurich’s beloved Tonhalle Orchestra. Zinman’s discography of some 100 recordings have won five Grammys and two Grands Prix du Disque. Zinman’s complete Beethoven symphony set with this same orchestra received the Award of the German Record Critics in 1999 and has since gone from one rave review to another. Founded in 1868, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra is Switzerland’s oldest symphony orchestra. Today it gives over 90 concerts each season, with the world’s leading conductors and solo artists. The BBC Music magazine Building a Library feature selected this Zinman recording of Don Quixote as the “First Choice” among all ever recorded.
