Notes & Reviews:

Shortly after completing his breathtaking 'Fifth Symphony', Beethoven composed incidental music for Goethe's drama, 'Egmont'. While the 'Overture' is well known, the remaining movements deserve no less attention as they chart the tragic course of Count Egmont's rebellion against the Spanish occupation of the Netherlands and his ill-fated love for Clara, whose suicide Beethoven movingly portrays. Two 'Marches', composed at around the same time, and his concert aria 'Ah! Perfido', written a decade earlier, complement one of Beethoven's most effective theatrical scores.

"...the performance is very grand, intense, at times genuinely ecstatic, and there are fine contributions from soprano Madeleine Pierard as a feisty Klärchen. The filler is the concert aria 'Ah! Perfido', which Pierard sings with extraordinary elegance and piercing clarity of tone." -The Guardian ****
