“The New York Philharmonic, Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 and 7, and our new association with Decca Gold — what a great combination for our first recorded collaboration together,” Jaap van Zweden, the New York Philharmonic’s newly-appointed Music Director has said.
“Our shared love of Beethoven, especially evidenced in these two great symphonies played by the masterful New York Philharmonic, gives a glimpse into our future and new life together,” he has said.
