|A Success Story|
With the release of the Ninth Symphony in September, the cycle of all nine Beethoven symphonies, which began in 2006, is now complete. This recording was also enthusiastically acclaimed by critics.
Last year on tour, three Beethoven concerts in New York and three complete Beethoven cycles in Paris, at the Salzburg Festival, and at the Beethovenfest in Bonn caused a sensation.
