    Interesting. Deutsche Gramophone posts so often on Instagram I think I often scroll by without absorbing everything. This was obviously one of those times.

    Edit:

    Here's what Merl said:

    "I came to De Vriend's cycle with some trepidation, not knowing to expect from this conductor and orchestra. Along with Fischer's cycle this one has been occupying much of my Beethoven symphonic listening lately, and with good reason. It's marvellous! De Vriend and his Netherlands SO create a big, tight, well-structured soundscape that's coarse enough in places to please those who like their Beethoven dirty and big-band enough to compete with Karajan et al. In short this is a top tier cycle. EVERY performance is at least very good and the most are excellent. The disc of symphonies 7&8 is my favourite with a killer account of the 7th and a hugely enjoyable 8th. The 9th is proper big-boned Beethoven (no weedy strings here) as is his recording of the 5th, which is paired with one of the finest 1sts in the catalogue. Speeds seem on the brisk side but looking at timings this isnt the case, it's merely De Vriend's propulsive readings. As for the sound it's excellent, boasting vibrant, detailed dynamic stereo spread (I don't own SACD) with a great sense of sound stage. Brass lovers - buy with confidence! Make no bones about it, this is up there with Skrowaczewski for me as one the best LvB cycles on the market and will particularly please those who like their Beethoven with some 'umph' and vigour. Hugely recommended."
