Together with its chief-conductor Kristiina Poska the Flanders Symphony Orchestra embarks on a journey recording the complete Beethoven symphonies. Beethoven’s symphonies have been a point of reference for the orchestra over the last few decades, being a bright lighthouse at the very heart of the symphonic literature. This first volume combines the First with the Seventh Symphony, demonstrating the spectacular range of rhetorics and emotions in Beethoven’s music. While the First Symphony still retains the lingering scent of the classical era, the Seventh is a culmination of the symphonic form originating from the dance suite, exploring all the possibilities of the early romantic orchestra and setting unprecedented musical standards for the future.
