The Dallas Symphony has released its second CD under the baton of music director Jaap van Zweden — just in time for the 20th anniversary celebration of the Meyerson and the DSO’s second season with van Zweden. The CD is a live recording from an August 2009 [erformance of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony and his Capriccio Italien — the performance of the Fifth was hailed by Scott Cantrell in the DMN, the Capriccio got props from La Scena Musicale.
I originally listed this as the DSO’s first recording with van Zweden but Scott told me the symphony released a pair of Beethoven symphonies. I thought they had, too, but concluded my memory was playing tricks on me when I couldn’t find it at Amazon or a couple of other CD sites. But there it is, at the Dallas Symphony website.
At any rate, here, you’ve got 30 seconds of the famous ending of the Fifth’s andante. The rest you can get through Amazon.com, Dallas Symphony.com or at the Dallas Symphony Store at the Meyerson.
