Freshness is the keyword here: a compelling freshness of articulation from the soloist and especially freshness from this fine Dutch orchestra, with vibrato-sparing strings and gutsy (period?) brass and timpani. Minnaar plays with deft panache and there is a real sense of chamber music being made; quiet passages emerge with an almost jaw-dropping hush, yet there is power and momentum when required. With excellent surround sound, this is a most desirable entry among recent cycles.
