Jukka–Pekka Saraste writes of this new album: I endeavor to disclose Beethoven’s emotions. That is the key to understanding his music. One has to constantly keep those currents of optimism and pessimism in balance. I believe that Beethoven’s impact is paramount because his message can be felt everywhere. Two of Beethoven’s most magnificent symphonies are featured on this new release from Jukka-Pekka Saraste and the WDR Sinfonieorchester.

The veteran Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste, who is 57, has led a mixed career on disc; nothing of particular brilliance has come my way. Begining in 2010 he took over the radio orchestra in Cologne, which had risen to some prominence in recordings under his energetic predecessor, Semyon Bychkov. This is the fourth in Profil's concert series featuring Saraste, and it displays the high-level of competency displayed in the earlier releases. This is traditional Brahms with no missteps but also no stretches of brilliance

Carl NIELSEN (1865-1931) Symphony No. 5 (1922) Symphony No. 6 (1925) Finnish Radio SO/Jukka-Pekka Saraste rec. Culture Hall, Helsinki, Sept 1997 (5); Sept 1999 (6) WARNER ELATUS 4-2 Immediate impressions are of lucid and cleanly recorded performances of Nielsen's last two symphonies. Saraste is blessed with a pristine aural sound-stage. The woodwind and brass are given a potent though not shattering presence. Accompanimental brass gestures which often go for naught elsewhere here float to the surface offering surprises and pleasure. These are estimable performances extremely well recorded in an open and natural acoustic. Saraste is an analytical and frequently exciting interpreter
