Beethoven/Sibelius – Wiesbaden Kurhaus, Germany

“A transparent, soft and delicate sound, well-balanced dynamic attacks, a mysterious and sinister Nordic mood coupled with a dense atmosphere, and a liberating finale drew the already well- predisposed musicians together, the strings, winds and timpani working cohesively.

This concert is definitely one of the absolute artistic highlights of the 26th Rheingau Musik Festival, closing the Festival on Saturday. Under the aegis of Jukka-Pekka Saraste, the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne has developed into one of Germany’s leading ensembles.”
