"This account of the work heaps revelation on revelation" - The Sunday Times
Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 is one of the world’s most influential pieces of music. This Collection explores the lifetime journey Benjamin Zander has taken with this piece. His ultimate vision for the piece was realized in his 2018 recording with the London Philharmonia Orchestra, which is available here alongside interviews, essays, photos, and Zander’s other recordings of this monumental work.
In this beautifully prepared CD booklet you will find crucial information about Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9. There is an essay by the distinguished writer Michael Steinberg, the complete text from the fourth movement translated in English, biographies of Benjamin Zander, the vocal soloists, the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus, the Chorus Master Stefan Bevier, and a crucial photograph outlining Beethoven’s clear indications of tempos.
