Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album marks the third volume in the critically-acclaimed Copenhagen Philharmonic's complete Beethoven Symphonies set. This volume contains the monumental final symphony with its iconic setting of Schiller's Ode to Joy. The Copenhagen Phil uses brass from the original time period of the symphony to recreate an authentic sound and experience for listeners. This album is a beautifully blended sound that is rarely heard in recreations of these symphonies.
