Paavo Järvi and The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen’s Beethoven cycle (Symphonies Nos 3-9) can now be experienced as filmed concerts. ›Klassik Cloud‹ presents a different Beethoven symphony every two days up until 8 June, all of which can be viewed for free on the orchestra’s website:

‘The worldwide success of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen is inextricably linked to its revolutionary Beethoven interpretations. With the cycle, the orchestra under the direction of chief conductor Paavo Järvi, set standards worldwide and has been causing a sensation and enthusiastic reviews ever since. Bremen’s Beethoven was by far the best in a Japanese music magazine’s ranking of all recordings ever recorded. The jury’s reasoning for the renowned Rheingau Music Prize awarded in 2019 stated, among other things, that the orchestra had “written history with their interpretation”. The weekly newspaper Die Zeit also recommended the Bremen Beethoven cycle earlier this year, ranking its recordings as among the five most important.’
