Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 5

Teodor Currentzis and MusicAeterna mark Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary with the release of two of his iconic Symphonies. These two masterworks will be released separately: Symphony No. 5 on April 3, 2020 and Symphony No. 7 in Autumn 2020. For Currentzis each symphony is similar to a novel, and two novels would never be combined into one book. Though they are informed by the experience of live performances, these recordings are painstakingly made over the course of many hours. The Greek-born Russian-based conductor is now famed for his perfectionist’s ear for detail, and his hand-picked ensemble of musicians follows him every step of the way over weeks of rehearsal together.
