"Da ist er wieder, jener ungemein "sprechende", rhetorisch geschärfte, vital pulsierende Beethoven, den Järvi schon in den Symphonien entdeckte. Die hier eingespielten Ouvertüren Beethovens, leider nur sechs von elf, sind die perfekte Ergänzung dazu. Fabelhaft, wie die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie die historisch informierte Spielpraxis verinnerlicht hat. Im knackig-trockenen Klangbild setzt Järvi auf grelle dynamische Kontraste und schroffe Akzente, gleichzeitig auf federnde Eleganz und Leichtigkeit. Das gilt zumal für Beethovens letzte Ouvertüre von 1822, "Die Weihe des Hauses" die seine nunmehr erlangte Meisterschaft im Umgang mit der Tradition demonstriert. Denn in dieser Festmusik ist Händels Pracht zu Beethovens Kunst verdichtet" (br.de)
