The New York Philharmonic has launched a partnership with Decca Gold, a newly established label, with the release of concert recordings of Beethoven’s Fifth and Seventh Symphonies. The performances are conducted by Jaap van Zweden, who becomes the orchestra’s music director in September 2018. In a review of the concert, the New York Times stated that “Mr. van Zweden led a clear-textured, emphatic and, in the finale, exuberant performance.”
