Once they had completed their award-winning Bruckner cycle, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski and the Radio Symphony Orchestra Saarbrücken set out to record the complete Beethoven symphonies. From the start, the project received enthusiastic comments from the reviewers. The cycle is now complete and the entire edition is available in an attractive boxed set! Stanislaw Skrowaczewski enjoys an extraordinary career in his advanced age: the conductor
was born in Poland, though the first highlights in his career followed in the USA when he was the director of the Minnesota Orchestra. In 2007, he became chief-conductor for the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra. Since 1994, he has been first guest conductor of the Radio Symphony Orchestra Saarbrücken.
“This cycle remains excellent. As well as fascinatingly unpredictable. (…) Do not wait for too long: Listen and enjoy (yourself)!”
