Tonhalle Orchester Z├╝rich_Edinburgh International Festival_Edinburgh

Switzerland's oldest orchestra returned to the Edinburgh International Festival 2013 with an admirable rendition of Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem. Under American David Zinman's secure leadership, the orchestra provided excellent support for the Festival Chorus and displayed remarkable finesse in the orchestral passages, with sumptuous strings and delicate phrase endings.
