Beethoven: Révolution, Symphonies 1 à 5

Jordi Savall might not be the first conductor you’d think of to bring you Beethoven symphonies, but with a musical curiosity that covers centuries and a musicianship to match, he doesn’t disappoint. Supplementing his splendid group, Le Concert des Nations, with a host of young players, he gives galvanizing accounts of these five symphonies. Shorn of the final four, the music offers a very different experience as we follow the huge steps from No. 1 to No. 5. Savall’s Beethoven is light on its toes, wonderfully witty, punchy, and very satisfying. Highlights are No. 1 and No. 3, but this part-journey offers many thrills.
