The Vienna Symphony Orchestra is publishing a complete Beethoven cycle on CD for the first time. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra wrote music history with the world premiere of works by Bruckner, Ravel and Schönberg. Under the baton of such illustrious conductors as Wilhelm Furtwängler, Herbert von Karajan, Carlo Maria Giulini and Georges Prêtre, they have gained worldwide fame for their unique Viennese sound style In view of this more than 100-year-old, magnificent history, it is all the more astonishing that the orchestra has never before recorded the nine Beethoven symphonies, often described as the pinnacle of the symphonic repertoire This flaw is now finally removed: Now all nine symphonies of the great Viennese by choice appear on five CDs in one box. The entire cycle is thus available for the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth in 2020 They were recorded live in the Golden Musikvereinssaal under the baton of chief conductor Philippe Jordan in a highly acclaimed cycle in spring/summer 2017.
