Notes & Reviews:

Manchester Camerata lodges the latest release in its acclaimed Beethoven Symphony cycle. Like the previous releases, these live recordings capture the spirit and freshness of these remarkable, genre-busting works as well as the excitement, atmosphere, and energy of the chamber orchestra under Music Director Douglas Boyd. Manchester Camerata has become one of the finest, most innovative chamber orchestras in the UK, and Douglas Boyd has proven to be an eminent Beethovenian. After he conducted the composer's Fidelio at the 2009 Garsington Opera Festival, The Times noted "his grasp of Beethovenian idiom" and "pungent underlining of orchestral detail," praising the musical performance as "sublime and exultant." This is the penultimate release in the Douglas Boyd-Manchester Camerata Beethoven Symphony cycle.
