  2. David A. McConnell

    The Kölner Akademie and Michael Alexander Willens are exceptionally sensitive collaborators,
    and their rapport with Brautigam is obvious.

    The classic review

  3. Rainer W. Janka

    There is no incense-laden Beethoven heroic image here: the tempi are consistently fast,
    energetically advancing, often rushing ahead. The "con brio" that Beethoven so often prescribes is
