Notes & Reviews:
This monumental release contains over 7 hours of music and bonus footage, and is a must-have for any serious Beethoven collector. All nine Beethoven Symphonies are recorded here by the Orchestra and Chorus of the Opera national de Paris, conducted by Philippe Jordan. Philippe Jordan's young but traditionalist interpretation of these works brings to life the spirit of historical performance practice, which sets a new course in Beethoven interpretation. This production was made by the creators of the exceptionally successful Shostakovich cycle, which was released to critical applause. These performances have been filmed in the highest quality known on the market today. In addition to the symphonies, a special 52 minute feature documentary is included: Reiner E Moritz's "Philippe Jordan- Zum Dirigieren Geboren (Born to Conduct)."Notes & Reviews:
