Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic had been working together for 12 years before being asked to perform all of Beethoven's symphonies at the Academia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome during February 2001.

Part 2 of Abbado's Beethoven cycle on DVD features symphonies 1, 6 and 8.

Abbado has spent decades refining his interpretations of Beethoven. With faster tempi than in earlier performances and convincing tempo links between the individual movements, exciting dramatic developments and sensitive lyrical cantilenas, it is clear that Abbado's cycle will become a milestone of contemporary interpretation.
