Notes & Reviews:
Recorded in High Definition with neck-flexing camerawork, this performance at Brussels' historic Concert Noble makes for an electrifying live event. The concert is accompanied by a documentary, which expands on the music, the musicians, and the trials & tribulations onstage and off.
Although Beethoven's C Minor Symphony is probably the best-known piece of classical music ever written, it is veiled in myths and misunderstandings that are beginning to clear up thanks to the research and performance efforts of musicians such as Jos van Immerseel and Anima Eterna. This DVD bears visual testimony to the fact that one does not need a symphony orchestra to capture the cosmic dimensions of Beethoven. Anima Eterna makes a convincing plea for a small-scale chamber orchestra with specialized musicians playing on period instruments and performing as soloists.
