Beethoven For All Music Of Power Passion And Beauty

Barenboim Daniel

Catalogue # 4783513

“I think the Beethoven symphonies with the Divan orchestra is different in the sense that there is a terrific amount of energy because of the youth of the people – but there is just as much rigour. The combination of rigour with youthful energy is very strong” (Daniel Barenboim, speaking in the TV documentary on this project).

The Symphonies were recorded in August 2011 in Cologne, the glorious (final) instalment of a worldwide tour that began in August 2010 at the legendary Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and will cover four continents by 2012. The orchestra’s 2012 engagements include a European tour culminating in the performance of all Nine Symphonies at the BBC Proms.

Review

Ludwig van Beethoven was not only considered one of the greatest composer who ever worked in the Western Art Music Tradition but was also one of the most passionate personalities of the time. This compilation covers the full gamut of emotions, from the happiness of the Pastoral Symphony to the majesty of the Symphony No 9. Daniel Barenboim is both the conductor as pianist and his love for this music is obvious in every phrases. He says, ‘Beethoven’s music is for everyone, everywhere’ and I think this small but significant set proves it.
