About

The Beethoven symphonies: all nine of them stunning masterworks, all nine performed countless times. Be that as it may, there are conductors who can recontextualise these symphonies in such a way that they sound completely new, as Iván Fischer proved in 2013 and 2014 in his Beethoven Series with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, spread out over two seasons.

A veritable journey of discovery through a familiar landscape.

Recorded Live at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam on 11 May 2013, 31 May 2013, 9-10 January 2014 and 20-21 February 2014.

"RCO plays a perfect Pastoral… The swinging Seventh […] can compete with the legendary performance of Carlos Kleiber…" - Roeland Hazendonk, Het Parool

"Fischer shed new light on Beethoven" - Floris Don, NRC
