More Info:

Over a thirteen-year period, Gábor Takács-Nagy and the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra embarked on a spiritual journey through the nine symphonies of Beethoven. The resultant cycle of recordings captures the ensemble's liberated and transformative account of these masterworks, approaching each opus with a sense of spontaneity, insight, and joy. In the words of legendary Beethoven biographer Jan Swafford: "Honesty is what we hear: no romantic lushness, no ego, rather a sense of the truth of each piece on it's own terms. There is a sense of intimate communication between an orchestra and conductor in service of a vision of the works as individuals and as a whole."
