About

With this album, the Wiener Symphoniker release the third part of their first Beethoven cycle on CD.

The first two releases in the Wiener Symphoniker’s first full recorded Beethoven’s symphony cycle met with universal acclaim from critics and audiences alike. Now the third part, in the form of Symphonies Nos. 2 and 7, is being released. The CD is part of the Wiener Symphoniker’s Road to Beethoven, a project to prepare for the year 2020, the 250th anniversary of the composer.

Both the first CD with Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3 and the second with Nos. 4 and 5 have been picked as 'CD of the month' by various international music magazines. Based on these releases, the British Gramophone magazine nominated the orchestra for 'Orchestra of the Year 2018'. In particular, the magazine praised Philippe Jordan’s approach of combining the classic Viennese sound with a more modern, leaner interpretation, original tempos and insights from historically informed performance. For Jordan, the content of the music was paramount. His goal was not to revere Beethoven as a monument but rather to present him in a more "natural, direct and personal" way.

Recorded live at the Musikverein Wien
