Reviews
Denmark's King Frederik IX was an accomplished amateur musician ... The results, however need no apology. The Danish musicians, for one, clearly go the extra mile for thier monarch, playing their hearts out in the slowish but resonant Wagner Tannhäuser and Rienzi Overtures. Both conductor and orchestra, in fact, imbue the obsessive rhythmic patterns throughout Beethoven's Seventh Symphony with greater definition and backbone than many world-class versions that crowd the catalog (ClassicsToday) [Read full review]
