Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphonies 1-9
The Haydn Orchestra is a formation that is now rare in the world of music: an orchestra composed of the players typical in a Haydn symphony (even fifty years ago this was still the usual size). As artistic director of the orchestra since 2003, Gustav Kuhn emphasizes precisely this unusual feature. The climax of this new artistic direction is a recording of all nine Beethoven symphonies on modern instruments. “The emotional states of the music can be performed just as well on modern instruments as with a philological interpretation of the scores,” says Gustav Kuhn. “Joy, innocence, seriousness, tenderness... it’s not the end of the world if I express it with gut or steel strings or some other way.”
A dazzling new recording of Beethoven’s piano concertos Nos. 1 & 5 featuring Jasminka Stancul together with Gustav Kuhn and his Haydn Orchestra!
