Conductor Bruno Weil on Beethoven Symphony No. 9
Tafelmusik is thrilled to announce the release date of a live recording of classical favourite Beethoven’s 9th Symphony — the final work in the orchestra’s complete cycle of Beethoven symphonies. With the September 30, 2016 release, Toronto's Tafelmusik makes history as the first North American orchestra to have recorded all nine Beethoven symphonies on period instruments. Beethoven’s 9th will be released on the Tafelmusik Media label with worldwide distribution by Naxos.
The recording took place February 4 through 7, 2016, during a series of sold-out, critically acclaimed public performances in Toronto’s Koerner Hall, with conductor Bruno Weil leading the combined forces of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, and guest soloists Sigrid Plundrich, soprano; Mary-Ellen Nesi, mezzo-soprano; Colin Balzer, tenor; and Simon Tischler, bass-baritone.
