“Anyone choosing this release is in for a very rewarding experience. It gives one the chance to see a world class (if not the world class) orchestra thoroughly at ease with their Music Director, playing favourite Beethoven symphonies with maximum style and enjoyment.”
--Classical Music Web on Symphonies 2 & 5 (DV-BPAB25)

Previously available as separate discs, this month offers the first opportunity to purchase Claudio Abbado’s full set of Beethoven’s symphonies recorded live at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome in 2000 and 2001.

Listening to the music, one hears how the Berlin Philharmonic transform Abbado’s musical intentions into sound – in an accord forged through many years of shared artistic experience and attention to detail. Abbado leads the orchestra through the score with clear, rhythmic signs and wide, sweeping, outline gestures, his body language, his intent way of listening to the sound produced, his watchful eye and his facial expression all reflecting the mood and the course of the music. This can be truly appreciated by means of one of this DVD’s exciting special features, the option to switch to the “Conductor Camera” in Symphonies Nos. 3, 5, 6 and 7 and experience Claudio Abbado from the orchestra’s perspective.
