Pianist Boris Berezovksy’s recent Beethoven Concertos recording with Thomas Dausgaard and The Swedish Chamber Orchestra has been praised by Jed Distler of Classical Source, who writes:

“Whatever Dausgaard’s chamber orchestra lacks in dynamic heft is more than compensated for by strong rhythmic acuity and utterly clear balances between sections… In the Choral Fantasy, Dausgaard’s penchant for crisp chordal attacks and timbral diversity demonstrates the virtues of the period instrument influence minus the mannerisms.”

Distler closes with, “Even in a catalog overrun with superb Emperors and Choral Fantasies, Berezovsky and Dausgaard leave a formidable mark.”
