Notes & Reviews:

In the years 1800-1830, the interplay of internal social forces and the new order in Europe created significant changes in people's experience and values, and formed a new image in the contemporary consciousness, based on themes inherited from the Enlightenment, apprehended afresh in a new image of humanity and a new representation of society and the world. It was for this "new humanity" that Beethoven composed his music, and in it he saw his duty as an artist and the ultimate truth of his art. This is especially true of his nine symphonies, recorded here by the OSM, conducted by Kent Nagano.

Since its founding in 1934, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra has distinguished itself as a leader of the orchestral life of Canada and Québec. A cultural ambassador of the highest order, the Orchestra has earned an enviable reputation internationally through the quality of its recordings and tours. The OSM carries on that rich tradition under the leadership of its Music Director, Kent Nagano, while featuring innovative programming aimed at underlining the relevance of orchestral repertoire in our lives and strengthening the Orchestra's connection with the community.
