“For these versions we have started from the fundamental idea of recovering the original sound of the orchestra as Beethoven imagined them, as well as the essential issue of tempo, written down by the composer himself. We performed all the orchestral works with instruments that correspond to those used at the time, resorting to a number of performers similar to that arranged by the composer, of about 55-60 musicians. We selected 35 players from Le Concert des Nations and, for the other 20 players, we selected young musicians from different countries in Europe and the rest of the world. The main goal is to reflect, in our 21st century, all the richness and beauty of these symphonies, thanks to a true balance between colours and the quality of the orchestra’s natural sound.” – Jordi Savall
