Notes & Reviews:
Taken from the 2012 Japan tour that performed the complete Beethoven cycle in various cities across Japan garnering much acclaim for the Chor and Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and now available in single editions, this live recording of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 from Tokyo's Suntory Hall also includes noted vocal soloists, Christiane Karg, Mihoko Fujimura, Michael Schade and Michael Volle, all frequent collaborators with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

This comes from the Jansons set of the nine Beethoven symphonies, released on CD and DVD and reviewed by Lawrence Hansen (M/A 2014). Hansen identified Jansons - correctly, I think - as a modernist whose music was "sleek, polished, and well-balanced, like a finely tuned modern luxury car". All in all, not a bad Ninth.
Recording information: Tokyo, Suntory Hall (12/01/2012).
