Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording features one of today’s most sought-after conductors, Vladimir Jurowski, who was appointed Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007, with many of his recordings on the LPO Label being chosen for special mentions by BBC Music Magazine and Gramophone Magazine. Inspired by acts of heroism, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 broke the mould of the classical symphony, and is considered the first symphony of the romantic era – its scale and ambition went on to be adopted by his contemporaries. Released for the first time on the Orchestra’s label, Symphony No. 3 contributes to the expanding collection of Beethoven works on the label; the most recent being Symphonies Nos. 1 & 4 conducted by Kurt Masur (LPO-0093). Read more Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 is coupled here with the Overture to Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, taken from the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s highly acclaimed performance at the BBC Proms in 2015 – The Independent named it a ‘spirited performance’.
