Notes & Reviews:

A Beethoven cycle that's fun from the first note to the last! Wojciech Rajski guides us through the utterly inexhaustible wealth of ideas, energetic and sensitive, humorous and dancelike, with dazzling elegance. And he brings out details that have not been heard before. Indulgence without pathos. The series developed over a period of 10 years. It began in 2005 in Sopot (Poland) and ended with the 9th Symphony in summer 2015 in St. John's Church, Gdansk. The original impetus for the whole project lay in the desire for the first recording of the Beethoven symphonies in Real surround sound. As a result, until now there has been no CD version: instead there has been only SACD or DVD-Audio. But Rajski's Beethoven features musical qualities which can't be denied to "normal" CD and stereo listeners. So here is a box set with new stereo mixes of all the recordings on 5 CDs.
