Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn continues its brilliant Beethoven cycle with the master's sixth and eighth symphonies, and once again the musicians from this musical Titan's birthplace, performing under Stefan Blunier's demanding baton, present an enthralling interpretation that need not fear comparison with legendary recordings. The BOB's recording of the first and fifth symphonies was a gigantic success, and the orchestra's fans can be certain of one fact: things will continue on this note! - Dabringhaus & Grimm [translated from German] The Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn continues its brilliant Beethoven cycle with the master's sixth and eighth symphonies, and once again the musicians from this musical Titan's birthplace, performing under Stefan Blunier's demanding baton, present an enthralling interpretation that need not fear comparison with legendary recordings.
