Notes & Reviews:
The Orchester Wiener Akademie and its conductor Martin Haselbock continue their Resound Beethoven series with this release, the fourth volume in the series. The aim of the Resound Beethoven series is to record the complete Beethoven symphonies on period instruments and in the venues where they were first performed, scrupulously respecting the layout of the orchestra used 200 years ago and meticulously following historical performance practices. This volume is devoted to the magnificent Symphony No. 3, "Eroica" and the Septet op: 20. The recording took place in May 2016 in the Eroica Saal at the Palais Lobkowitz, where each work was premiered in 1804 and 1907, in private performances.
