Product description

To date this critically acclaimed cycle of Beethoven's complete orchestral music by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra under the conductor Thomas Dausgaard has set several benchmarks for the scaled-down approach to many of these oft-recorded works. In particular, Volume 5 was selected as best available recording of the Triple Concerto by BBC Radio 3's CD Review in the "Building a Library" section.

Centring on one of his acknowledged masterpieces in the shape of the Eighth Symphony, the programme on this new disc, Volume 9 in the series, also includes smaller and far rarer pieces which Beethoven produced around the same time.
Symphony No. 8 is the shortest and most classically constructed of Beethoven's symphonies. It bursts with humour and energy, and is written with an unusual concentration and economy,

So-called 'battle pieces' were quite common at this period, but Beethoven's contribution to the genre is more ambitious than most. The success of Wellington's Victory, or the Battle of Vittoria, gave a boost to Beethoven's fame in England. Various stages of the battle (including a charge) are depicted, and the rich orchestration which includes some very specific notation for the cannons creating unusual cross-rhythmical effects is a notable feature.

Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)
