Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Philippe Herreweghe
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphonies #2 and #6
One of the most cerebral of conductors, Herreweghe always guarantees an intelligent approach and that's in evidence again here. He keeps to Beethoven's metronome markings, strictly obeying the score. Not that this results in any diminution of power; quite the opposite.
