Johan Botha

Beethoven for connoisseurs and musical spirits”: This was Fono Forum’s summary of Beethoven’s Third Symphony with the RSO Vienna under Bertrand de Billy.
Now, OehmsClassics presents Beethoven’s Second Symphony, likewise with de Billy and the RSO Vienna.
And for a luxurious encore, this recording includes a performance of Brahms’ seldom-heard cantata Rinaldo, recorded live at the Salzburg Summer Riding School 2007. Johan Botha sings the tenor part – since then he has passionately promoted this work.
