Kurt Masur conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra

The Symphonies on this disc, recorded live during his tenure as Principal Conductor (2000-07), are the fruits of Kurt Masur’s 25-year relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. A pre-eminent interpreter of Beethoven, Masur conducted from memory, bringing to the performances a special energy and insight. The result is a mighty celebration and sense of rediscovering the drama and euphoria of two of Beethoven’s most radical and well-loved Symphonies.
