American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This release is Volume 11 of the complete orchestral works of Beethoven, played by a group of about 38 musicians. The previous volumes included the symphonies and concertos. Beethoven wrote his music for the ballet The Creatures of Prometheus in 1801; it consisted of the well-known overture, a well-known about finale, and 15 interior movements. There is the exciting overture and the finale, which introduces the theme Beethoven would later use in the finale to the Eroica Symphony, as well as in the Eroica Variations. The 12 Minuets and 12 German Dances (WoO 7 & 8) both date from 1795. They were first heard at a ball for the Viennese Artists' Pension Fund in 1795 as such they are fine. It's good to know Beethoven did this kind of thing. The playing is incisive and dramatic. The results are certainly exciting.
