Notes and Editorial Reviews
"When it comes to recordings of
The Creatures of Prometheus, there are two that are truly outstanding:
Charles Mackerras with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra on Hyperion, and Nikolaus Harnoncourt with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe on Warner/Teldec. Both feature modern (as opposed to “period”) instruments under the leadership of inspirational conductors schooled in Baroque and Classical period performance techniques. The result is fresh, lively, and above all, believably danceable. For those looking to explore Beethoven beyond the most famous symphonies and concertos,
The Creatures of Prometheus is an excellent place to start."
