More Info:

Continuing his cycle of Beethoven's symphonies with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Ivan Fischer releases Symphony No. 3 'Eroica' paired with the Coriolan Overture. These warhorses of the symphonic repertoire showcase how Beethoven writes not only dramatically, but also profoundly lyrically. Fischer's process of recording the cycle has been notably drawn out, having first insisted on performing and touring the music with his outstanding orchestra before committing to a studio recording. Previous releases feature Beethoven's Symphonies Nos. 1, 4, 5, 6 and 7. They have been roundly praised, with The Guardian saying "the performance of the Seventh ranks, without question, among the greatest ever recorded. Utterly compelling."
