Conductor

Rene Leibowitz

About

This set includes René Leibowitz's acclaimed Beethoven symphonies cycle, also noted for attempting to follow very precisely Beethoven's metronome marks.

Leibowitz's conducting repertoire, which spanned virtually everything, is well represented in this comprehensive 13CD set. Many recordings featured in this set have been available only as downloads, and it contains glorious, inspired, unique interpretations of 'classical' masterpieces.

After WW II, Leibowitz became one of the most sought-after conductors in Europe and his well deserved reputation is extensively represented in this set.
