Notes & Reviews:

This is the first and only complete recording of the Beethoven Symphonies with Mariss Jansons and his Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. This long-awaited cycle consists of the best concerts recordings of the orchestra's Japan tour and its Munich concerts in late 2012. The six-CD edition is supplemented by works commissioned by Mariss Jansons from internationally renowned contemporary composers, requiring that each should refer to a Beethoven symphony.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The recordings were made in the Herkulessaal in Munich and Suntory Hall in Tokyo. The sound is uniformly excellent, and I couldn't tell the change of location from one performance to the next. The engineering is as good as it gets this side of SACD or Blu-ray audio, with decent weight in the bass and clarity of detail. The overall effect is the kind of integrated ensemble sound you get from a few rows back in the auditorium.
