Beethoven: Symphonien No 1 & 5
Label: Channel Classics
Orchestra - Budapest Festival Orchestra Conductor - Ivan Fischer
Symphonies Nos.1 & 5
When Iván Fischer founded the Budapest Festival Orchestra over 30 years ago, he fulfilled a personal dream. The core of the orchestra's philosophy is the complete absence of everyday routine. It is about taking the risk, the initiative and the freedom to do things differently. Every concert is therefore a joyful discovery of new territory, a journey to new horizons in music. It feels unexpected and surprising, as if it was played for the first time. The festival orchestra is characterized by openness for the new and the unknown, curiosity and attention to detail. It is the innovative approach to music, the commitment of the musicians and their constant quest for excellence that have made the Budapest Festival Orchestra the youngest of the ten best ensembles in the world.
