Notes and Editorial Reviews

Günther Herbig celebrated his 80th birthday on 30th November of 2010 and Berlin Classics released this CD of Beethoven’s complete Prometheus ballet music to mark the occasion. The stereo recording was originally made in East Berlin in 1971 and is a fine example of Herbig’s mid-life conducting career, before he achieved international fame. Herbig emigrated to the United States in 1983 and from 1984 became conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. From 2001 to 2006 he was Chief Conductor of Radio Symphony Orchestra Saarbrücken and most recently the Columbus Symphony Orchestra.
