Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 3 & 5


The Philharmonia Orchestra is widely recognised as the UK’s finest orchestra with an impressive recording legacy, with this being their sixth disc with Signum. Christoph Von Dohnányi has been principle conductor for the past 11 years and has recently been made Honorary Conductor for life.
The disc features two crowning achievements of Beethoven’s aptly titled ‘Heroic’ compositional period of the early 19th Century; the Third Symphony (Eroica), and the Fifth Symphony, arguably the single most popular piece of classical music in the Western canon.

What people are saying

“The musical argument is pursued with unflagging vigour combined with a high degree of orchestral virtuosity – the excitement remains intense in this hugely satisfying account.” International Record Review
"These are fine, intelligent and very well played live performances and both are very welcome additions to the catalogue." Musicweb-International
