"What is it that still fascinates us about Beethovenís Symphonies two hundred years after they were written? What is it that makes them still so special today? With this video, I would like to take you on a journey into Beethovenís musical world. To do this it is necessary to discover a little about his compositional techniques. I believe that the more one knows, the more one hears and enjoys and so this series 'Beethoven Today' is intended for both experienced listeners and for people who perhaps want to explore Beethovenís music for the first time." - Dirk Joeres
Dirk Joeresís recordings have received superb reviews in the international music press: for example, Gramophoneís Criticís Choice (Brahms Serenades with the Westdeutsche Sinfonia) and Pizzicatoís Supersonic Award for a Schumann CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. For more than 25 years the Westdeutsche Sinfonia has stood for "superb orchestral playing" (Gramophone magazine). BBC Music Magazine selected their recording of Johannes Brahmsís Serenades as one of their 100 Top CDs: "an irresistible release".
