Absolutely Essential Beethoven

I have now heard and own the three discs that are currently available in the Paavo Jarvi/Bremen German Chamber Philharmonic cycle of Beethoven symphonies, and I must say that this cycle is, in my mind, the best recorded, best performed, and most enjoyable cycle ever. These are performances of real stature that, while you have never heard Beethoven like this, come across as completely valid interpretations of Beethoven’s masterpieces; the performances in no way stray from the character and intent of the music’s creator. They grab hold of you from the very first note until the very last note, and they do not let go. The sound quality on multi channel SACD equipment is astounding. The more I listen to these performances, the more I like them. I give them my highest recommendation, and consider them to be absolutely essential recordings. Beethoven must be looking down smiling and saying “yes, that’s what I meant.”

  1. I love Furtwangler in the Eroica and would never have thought i’d enjoy a chamber version so much, but what Jarvi accomplishes here is remarkable – thanks very much!
