Beethoven: The Complete Orchestral Works, Volume 1

The first volume of Thomas Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra’s epic SIMAX series of The Complete Beethoven Orchestral Works.  The album features Musik zu Einem Ritterballett, a relatively unknown work from the young Beethoven as well as Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2.

Reviews

“Dausgaard leads extremely appealing performances of both the ballet and the symphonies… Simax has given Dausgaard exemplary recorded sound” – Fanfare
