"We know that Beethoven asked musicians very precise questions about the technical capacities of their instruments. So he knew exactly what he was doing when he pushed an instrument to the very limit of its possibilities. It’s partly the great technical difficulty that makes his music so revolutionary, but also the dramatic character this element confers on the music (and this dramatisation is further emphasised if one respects contemporary pitch standards, which were high – at least 440, if not more). That’s why it is so important to perform this music on period instruments. - Jos van Immerseel

“[van Immerseel's] progress from the Baroque via the classical to the early Romantic eras is evident in these elegant performances, which are more for the historical purist than the full-on romanticist. The tempi are measured, the playing delicate, painting a portrait more of Beethoven the master craftsman than the fiery visionary.” The Observer, 20th April 2008

“Indeed, from the first bristling chords, Anima Eterna's playing held me on the edge of my seat. ” Gramophone Magazine, June 2008

“a blazing performance of the Seventh Symphony that reaches a superbly disciplined and frenzied conclusion” BBC Music Magazine *****

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.

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.
