Beethoven: Symphonies nos. 4 & 6: Complete symphonies vol.1

Challenge Classics - CC 72361
Netherlands Symphony Orchestra / Jan Willem de Vriend
Complete symphonies vol.1:
Symphony no. 4 op. 60 in B flat major
Symphony no. 6 op. 68 (sinfonia pastorale) in F major (1808)
A refreshing new recording of the Beethoven symphonies (volume 1), through the eyes of conductor

Jan Willem de Vriend and his orchestra. De Vriend's name as a symphonic conductor is emerging fast

now in the music world, and this first volume of the Beethoven series is a fine musical signature, with

which he and his musicians perpetuate themselves.

In the liner notes with this CD we can read:

If you want to perform his symphonies and surely if you want to record them, you must make a

thorough study of Beethoven’s personal situation and that of the world around him. Here we can only

set down a few short brushstrokes on an enormous empty metaphoric canvas. A canvas that must be

filled completely, preferably painted true to life right down to the smallest details, using a fantastic

palette of colours. When it is finished, we will see Beethoven, situated in his time. The painting will tell

a story.

With this new Beethoven cycle conductor Jan Willem de Vriend, together with the Netherlands

Symphony Orchestra, ventures to tell a new story. His story. With enormous passion and enthusiasm,

he has immersed himself in the life and work of Beethoven. To gain the best possible understanding

of Beethoven, he says, you must know something about the people around him: for example, his

teachers Albrechtsberger and Neefe, who watched his career. You need to know what it was like in

Bonn when he grew up there. You need to know that his grandfather enjoyed trading wine and that

Beethoven therefore took pleasure in allowing himself to be paid in wine, for example by his publisher.

You need to know where his roots are. You need to know the music of his pupils, such as Ries and

Moscheles. Jan Willem de Vriend has conducted the music of Beethoven, of people who composed

for him, of his contemporaries. He has been working on this intensively for the past twenty years.

This recording of the Fourth and Sixth symphonies is an interpretation of Jan Willem de Vriend and his

orchestra, belonging to a certain moment in time and recounted entirely in sounds. It is a story

understood in detail and given shape in masterly fashion. (Valentine Laout – liner notes)


Jan Willem de Vriend is the artistic director of Combattimento Consort Amsterdam and since 2006

the chief conductor and artistic director of the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.

Combattimento Consort Amsterdam devotes itself to the music of about 1600 to 1830. Since its

founding in 1982, it has performed virtually throughout the world as well as on many CDs, DVDs and

television productions.

Since De Vriend was named chief conductor in 2006, the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra has

become a notable phenomenon on the Netherlands’ musical scene. It has presented semi-scenic

performances of works by Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Mendelssohn. There were premieres of

works by Offenbach, Say and Mahler. And by substituting historical instruments in the brass section, it

has developed its own distinctive sound in the 18th- and 19th-century repertoire. Recently, the

orchestra performed music by Schumann at festivals in Spain. The release of Beethoven’s complete

symphonies, conducted by De Vriend, is a big project which starts with the release of this current CD.

Also the orchestra's long Mahler tradition is being continued in recordings and tours.

De Vriend has been a guest conductor with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the

Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, The Hague

Philharmonic and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, as well as orchestras in Germany, Sweden

and Australia. He is often invited to conduct both in the Netherlands and abroad. He has engagements

pending, for example, with The Hague Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as well as

orchestras in China, Germany, Austria and Italy.

The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra is an orchestra with passion, commitment and virtuosity. The

orchestra serves the province of Overijssel with concert series in Enschede, Hengelo, Zwolle and

Deventer. Another important role for the orchestra is accompanying De Nationale Reisopera and

provincial choral societies. Working with top musicians from all over the world has contributed towards

the orchestra achieving its aim of bringing concerts of the highest quality to a broad public. Important

conductors for the orchestra were Ed Spanjaard, Rudolf Barshai, Martin Panteleev, Mark Shanahan,

Vasili Petrenko and Otto Tausk. Jaap Van Zweden made an indelible impression during his period as

chief conductor and set the orchestra well and truly on the map. He will return frequently as guest

conductor. Many great international soloists have worked with the orchestra – Gidon Kremer, Natalia

Gutman, Heinrich Schiff, Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Charlotte Margiono to name a few.
