Nézet-Séguin conducts Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1-9
"Beethoven was and will remain…the most influential figure of music in history," Yannick Nézet-Séguin has said in interview. And you can experience first-hand the Canadian conductor's intensive engagement with the composer here: with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, he presents all nine of Beethoven's symphonies in thrilling concert series at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. In these performances, recorded in the summer of 2021, the music is presented with sharp contrasts and precise articulation, the extremes of this unique cycle grippingly conveyed: beauty and radicalism, wit and tragedy, chamber-musical delicacy and massive orchestral monumentality.
