The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was founded by Sir Thomas Beecham in 1946 and is one of the world’s most prestigious bodies of musicians. In 1993 the RPO began to record important works of classical music for their unique “Royal Philharmonic Collection”. It was in this connection that the present recordings of the Complete Symphonies of Beethoven were made.

The conductors who took part in the project included Barry Wordsworth, for many years conductor-in-chief of the BBC Concert Orchestra, and James Lockhart who was musical director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in the 1960s. The internationally successful Günther Herbig, a Karajan pupil, is also featured here along with one of the few women to make a reputation as conductor during this period, Claire Gibault.

“This is an exceptional realisation of Beethoven's nine symphonies, one of those rare occasions when one is left with a feeling of having been in the presence of the thing itself. The key to the cycle's success is the quality of the musicianship...the dramatic and expressive elements are derived from within” Gramophone Magazine, December 2013

“Jansons adopts...an approach which takes into consideration the historically informed approach of the last 30 years, but is still aware of what performances were like in the great German tradition...If you want vigorous conducting, immaculate but lean playing, and unfailingly sprightly tempos in the Beethoven, this set is for you.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2014 ***

These famous recordings of the symphonies and overtures with his beloved Vienna Philharmonic display legendary Austrian conductor Karl Böhm’s innate sympathy for Beethoven’s music. Böhm’s Beethoven is a compound of earth and fire ... His 1971 VPO recording of [the] Sixth dominated the LP catalogue for over a decade ... and it remains one of the finest accounts of the work (Gramophone).

Celebrated as an outstanding conductor in an era of great conducting, Bruno Walter favoured the Austro-German repertoire. He sought to penetrate to the core of a composition and, detesting routine performances, continually endeavoured to present a piece as if it were receiving its world premiere.

Czech Philharmonic Orchestra & Prague Philharmonic Choir, Paul Kletzki

Beethoven’s symphonies are among the cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire. They bear witness to the composer’s remarkable journey from airy Classicism to the peerless idiom he had developed on the threshold of the Romantic epoch.

Those who have taken up the challenge to record the complete cycle include the Polish-born conductor Paul Kletzki, who gained great renown after the war, primarily in America. He was the principal conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra for a year and after his debut in Philadelphia went on to conduct the leading American and European orchestras.

This remarkable complete recording of Beethoven’s symphonies was made during Kletzki’s performances with the Czech Philharmonic in 1967, during the orchestra’s golden age under the chief conductor Karel Ančerl. This gem of the Supraphon archives thoroughly deserves the current re-edition in remastered form owing to its freshness and expressive depth.

Beethoven as explored by Kletzki – a legendary, time-honoured recording.

“The Czech Phil’s sound here is charismatic and idiomatic, with a rich, muscular string timbre cushioning highly distinctive wind and brass playing...The interpretations hold up very well – Kletzki’s speeds are unhurried, but never seem unduly slow as he’s so good at sustaining the string lines and giving plenty of lift to the rhythms...[in the Ninth] the Czech choral sound is thrilling and Kletzki has good soloists.” Graham Rickson, The Arts Desk, 9th July 2011
