Beethoven, Symphony no. 1 in C Major, op. 21, Adagio - Allegro con brio

Beethoven Symphonies 1-4 & Overtures

"We approach these Beethoven symphonies as if they were the very first performance, as though the music had been composed yesterday. This is the real thing -  there's no sense of routine with Tafelmusik musicians, and everybody's giving their all for this music, playing with a full heart and a full soul and spirit."

- Conductor Bruno Weil

Long-time Tafelmusik collaborator Bruno Weil conducts these performances. Previously released recordings include the JUNO Award-winning Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6 CD, and the JUNO Award-nominated Symphonies Nos. 7 & 8 CD and DVD.
