Selected alongside 9 other outstanding musicians who have “enriched music-making the most over the past year” Gramophone wrote “Possibly the most recorded of today’s top-rank conductors, Järvi’s musical sympathies remain as wide and questing as ever. Recent discs reveal not just Järvi’s musical breadth but also the number of recording companies seeking his services.”
