Info

It is done: With the release of the recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony under Philippe Jordan, the Wiener Symphoniker's first cycle of Beethoven’s symphonies recorded on CD will finally be completed. This release will also mark the end of project Road to Beethoven with which the Wiener Symphoniker have been preparing for the anniversary year 2020 celebrating the composer’s 250th birthday. The timeless and last completed symphony of Beethoven represents the logical culmination of this recording project. Judging by the size of the orchestra and the diversity of the instruments involved, the “Ninth” burst the dimensions of classical symphonies, opened up new compositional and musical spaces and set the standards for symphonic classical music that are valid to this day. Philippe Jordan and the Wiener Symphoniker were supported by a fantastic solo ensemble including Anja Kampe, Daniela Sindram, Burkhard Fritz, René Pape, and the Wiener Symphoniker under the direction of Johannes Prinz.
