Product Description

Product Description

This specially priced 5CD set of the complete symphonies of Beethoven is performed by the period instrument orchestra La Chambre Philharmonique under conductor Emmanuel Krivine. It includes a critically-acclaimed recording of the Symphony No. 9 (V5202) released in 2009, the only one of the CDs to have been previously available. La Chambre Philharmonique was formed by Emmanuel Krivine and is made up of instrumentalists from the finest European ensembles. Its structure is original, in that conductor and players enjoy equal status and current members choose new players. The size of the ensemble is flexible, bringing together players, instruments and historical techniques as appropriate for each programme. The orchestra’s first recording of Mozart’s Mass in C Minor (V5043) marked the beginning of its collaboration with Naïve. This was followed by the world premiere recording on period instruments of Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 ‘From the New World’, coupled with Schumann’s Konzertstück for four horns and orchestra, which won a Classique d’Or RTL on its release in 2008. Since then its CDs of Mendelssohn’s Symphonies (V5069) and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony (V5202) have received numerous awards in the press. These performances of the complete Beethoven Symphonies were recorded in three French venues, Cite de la Musique in Paris, MC2: Grenoble, and the Theatre de Caen). Personnel: Sinéad Mulhern (soprano), Carolin Masur (mezzo-soprano), Dominik Wortig (tenor), Konstantin Wolff (bass-baritone), Choeur de Chambre les Éléments, Joël Suhubiette (chorusmaster), La Chambre Philharmonique (on period instruments), Emmanuel Krivine (conductor)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beethoven the hard way 2 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The criteria for reviewing a set, as opposed to a single work, have to be different. They are: is the standard of performance/interpretation sufficient to justify releasing the whole set, and is the approach consistent throughout? There is no doubt about the virtuosity of what the notes show to be almost a scratch orchestra (of the 84 players listed, only 23 play in every symphony). The set is evidence of how much the original instrument orchestra has advanced in technique since its first appearance in the 1970s. One anticipates the rather too frequent faulty wind/brass intonation in the slow movement of the 9th, and it doesn’t come! The tricky horn/clarinet dialogue in the slow movement of the 7th is just perfect. The comparison today is not with performances on modern instruments, but with the sometimes precarious early attempts at total authenticity. The orchestra of modern instruments meanwhile, has adapted to the stringencies of HIP, so that sometimes the differences are hard to detect. Here the choir in the 9th is also good, with the usual proviso that the top Cs in the soprano line verge on sounding flat. As they always do, there is little point in discounting these performances for that reason. The only ways of avoiding it would be to have a cathedral choir with a tradition of singing at this register, or to employ a soprano line of Queens of the Night. Neither solution would be satisfactory. Here the soprano soloist isn’t steady enough, but doesn’t spoil the party.
The notes by conductor Krivine do not give much away about the overall performance philosophy. He says “we have compared the critical editions, studied all the sources, the better to free ourselves from them”. What characterises all the performances is a probably unprecedented clarity of sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the very best! 29 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
I'm someone who listens to music very carefully and critical through my headphone. I heard at least 10 of the best versions of this cycle. All I want to say is that Krivine's 'live' cycle belongs to the very best of all time. The style Krivine conducts his orchestra is very special, totally different than all previous recordings.
Van Immerseel's version has the same quality, but is more conventional.
If you buy one of these two cycles, you will have the best you'll ever get!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Beethoven 5 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard these on Classic FM which was John Suchet cd of the week several weeks ago and staight away I new these were something special so despite the fact that I already own several recording of the complete Beethoven symphonies I just had to have this one and I was not disappointed, these are superb performances and excellent live recordings played on original instruments.
