Notes & Reviews:

November 30, 2011 marked the 80th birthday of conductor Günther Herbig, ample reason for Berlin Classics to offer him its congratulations with a new Beethoven compilation! Herbig learned his trade with Hermann Abendroth in Weimar, continuing his studies with Hermann Scherchen and Herbert von Karajan. He was appointed Principal Conductor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra in 1977, but found himself obliged to resign his post in Autumn 1983 as the result of a dispute over arts policy. In 1984 he emigrated to the US, where he spent 10 years as principal conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony.
