BEETHOVEN

Complete Symphonies

SWR Sinfonieorchester / Michael Gielen

When Gielen started confronting orchestras and audiences with Performances of Beethoven that took the composer’s metronome markings literally, he was met with displeasure and incomprehension on all sides. The prevailing opinion was that there was something wrong with Beethoven’s metronome (or else with the conductor who took the figures seriously). But Gielen refuses to see why Fate necessarily has to knock at the door slowly (in the Fifth). “Why can’t it knock rapidly? After all, Fate is impatient.” And a gigantic movement like the Allegro con brio of the “Eroica” is incomprehensible except at the fast tempo Beethoven asks for.

The Legendary Recording of Ludwig van Beethoven's symphonies with SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg.

"Michael Gielen is a giant…his performances are exacting, penetrating and revealing; there is no glitz or effects, no abuse, no need to pander to excess. The musical rewards are considerable." Classical Source

a rare example of an intellectual musician, historically and philosophically well-versed, a thoughtful conductor, an analytical mind.” Ernst von Siemens Music foundation, Rainer Peters
