The Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn continues its brilliant Beethoven cycle with the master's sixth and eighth symphonies. Onnce again the musicians from his birthplace, performing under Stefan Blunier's demanding baton, present an enthralling interpretation that need not fear comparison with legendary recordings.

This production has been recorded with the finest SACD technology. In MDG's unique 2+2+2 format the tone paintings of the "Pastoral" appear in refreshing clarity and diaphanous transparency.
