Jordi Savall’s Concert des Nations concludes its Beethoven journey with the legend’s final four symphonies. They were recorded in Paris in the autumn of 2021 (the 6th and 7th Symphonies were recorded on October 5th, and the 8th and 9th Symphonies on October 15th), during the same period of time in which the orchestra played two concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris, consequently bringing to a close their complete concert series, which they’d been performing across two years.

The finesse that graced their first volume, published in the summer of 2020, has been maintained in their second. These Beethoven pieces are alert and incisive - in accent, in rhythm and in articulation. Strangely enough, these symphonies, which were composed by Beethoven once he’d reached his musical maturity, have almost been arranged in a style that seems to allude to Haydn and Mozart at times. However, it’s clear that textures are becoming denser, and the orchestra is starting to make masterful use of their musical freedom - fans of the timpani will love this!

What Beethoven invented in the early 19th century, in terms of timbre and new colours (particularly within Symphonies No.3 and No.4), was consolidated in his later work, transforming symphonic composition for a long time to come. The 7th is often considered the metaphorical Everest of his symphonic repertoire, not only for its choreographic essence (which has never since been found in this genre), but also for its joyous celebration of the true Beethoven spirit: compositional blocks joined together by polyphonic melodies, creating a weighty, triumphant sound. Jordi Savall has clearly focussed on Beethoven’s major impact on the history of music throughout the creation of this project. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

Album Description

Jordi Savall’s Concert des Nations concludes its Beethoven journey with the legend’s final four symphonies. They were recorded in Paris in the autumn of 2021 (the 6th and 7th Symphonies were recorded on October 5th, and the 8th and 9th Symphonies on October 15th), during the same period of time in which the orchestra played two concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris, consequently bringing to a close their complete concert series, which they’d been performing across two years.

The finesse that graced their first volume, published in the summer of 2020, has been maintained in their second. These Beethoven pieces are alert and incisive - in accent, in rhythm and in articulation. Strangely enough, these symphonies, which were composed by Beethoven once he’d reached his musical maturity, have almost been arranged in a style that seems to allude to Haydn and Mozart at times. However, it’s clear that textures are becoming denser, and the orchestra is starting to make masterful use of their musical freedom - fans of the timpani will love this!

What Beethoven invented in the early 19th century, in terms of timbre and new colours (particularly within Symphonies No.3 and No.4), was consolidated in his later work, transforming symphonic composition for a long time to come. The 7th is often considered the metaphorical Everest of his symphonic repertoire, not only for its choreographic essence (which has never since been found in this genre), but also for its joyous celebration of the true Beethoven spirit: compositional blocks joined together by polyphonic melodies, creating a weighty, triumphant sound.
