These live recordings document readings that are the fruit of decades of Claudio Abbado’s involvement with Beethoven. Listening to the music, one hears how the Berlin Philharmonic transform Abbado’s musical intentions into sound – in an accord forged through many years of shared artistic experience and attention to detail.
The success of these live performances was overwhelming: there were standing ovations after each concert, and the critics spoke of “seminal moments in the history of music”. Abbado's cycle will surely become a milestone of contemporary interpretation!
As a special feature, this DVD offers the “Conductor Camera”. This innovative function shows the great maestro from the front – a musician’s eye view! (Beethoven No.6)
Vigorous and magnificent, furiously direct - but at the same time blessed with an astounding richness of detail...”  Süddeutsche Zeitung
