Beethoven: Eroica - Egmont Overture
Format: COMPACT DISC
Ballot, Rémy; Klangkollektiv Wien
The ensemble KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN as newly founded orchestral body in the Austrian cultural landscape has already with their first Schubert recording (Gramola 99180) met with an enthusiastic audience. The unique approach of the musicians with conductor and “sound designer” Rémy Ballot to get to the bottom of the works of Viennese classical music and to reveal their inner logic, leads to a new understanding of orchestra. Gramola now publishes a concert recording of the “Vorstadt premiere” in Vienna’s Penzing district with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 “Eroica” as well as the Egmont Overture for the Beethoven year 2020 (250th anniversary of his birth). Following their self-conception KLANGKOLLEKTIV WIEN interprets these works in the slim and transparent original cast of the premiere with only six first violins, thus opening an acoustic reminiscence of the year 1804.
