"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)

Auf ihrem neuesten Album hat das sowohl national als auch international mit Preisen ausgezeichnete Klavierduo Yaara Tal und Andreas Groethuysen die Slawischen Tänze op. 46 und 72 von Dvorák eingespielt. Sie gehören zu den bekanntesten Kompositionen des tschechischen Komponisten und wurden im Original tatsächlich für Klavier zu vier Händen geschrieben. Erst kurze Zeit später entstand die heute berühmte Bearbeitung für Orchester. Dvorák war mit seinen Slawischen Tänzen op. 46, die er nach dem Vorbild der Ungarischen Tänze seines Förderers und Freundes Johannes Brahms konzipiert hatte, der langersehnte Durchbruch auch jenseits der Grenzen seiner Heimat gelungen. Der primär kunstmusikalische Charakter der Slawischen Tänze zeigt sich aber besonders in eben dieser originalen vierhändigen Klavierfassung, was auch die Interpretation des Klavierduos Tal & Groethuysen hervorragend zu Gehör bringt.
