This extra helping of Beethoven’s music for winds comes on the heels of Les Vents Français’s recent triple-CD release Winds & Piano, praised by The Telegraph for “stylistically sure and interpretatively ear-catching” performances, including one of Beethoven’s Op.16 Quintet, which earned the group added plaudits for “astutely balanced and finely observed” playing. This recording offers much more of a good thing, with Beethoven grouping the winds in a variety of smaller combinations.

«Beethoven ? But did he ever compose anything for the organ?» We do not know the exact answer to this question. Yet the theme of Beethoven’s relationship to the “King of Instruments” has time and again occupied, indeed fascinated musicologists, but above all organists. Why is this? Is it the hardly conceivable idea that the composer only wrote very little for the organ and above all – compared to his work overall – little of note? To supply proof that Beethoven bequeathed us compositions that – if indeed not expressly composed for organ – nonetheless may outstandingly be performed on the instrument of his youthful years for which he like many young people felt considerable fascination: such is the aim of the present recording…

Following on from her recording of piano concertos by Hummel and Beethoven, Austrian pianist Ingrid Marsoner presents her interpretations of late piano sonatas by Beethoven. Marsoners subtle yet vigorous playing opens the disc with Sonata No. 28 in A major Op. 101. The Rondo alla ingharese, quasi un capriccio Op. 129 is better known by its popular name Rage over a Lost Penny and is an earlier work, as is the 'lighter' Sonata No. 24 in F sharp major Op. 78, which provides a welcome intermezzo and an interesting contrast to the somewhat more profound late sonatas featured. The final track, Sonata No. 32 in C minor Op. 111, symbolises the world and the hereafter with its two very dissenting movements.

Karl Böhm's Beethoven is, on balance, the best complete cycle available from Deutsche Grammophon. This will come as a surprise to many, given the fact that the label relentlessly promotes performances by Herbert von Karajan (three complete cycles!) and Leonard Bernstein, but for quality of playing, as well as superb sound, these versions are just about unbeatable. And at a "twofer" price, the complete set on three pairs of discs is a terrific value. –David Hurwitz

This is one of the greatest recordings of the famous Ninth Symphony. It has long been overshadowed by Karajan's three recordings for the same label, as well as Bernstein's version with the same orchestra. But put them all on your CD player and compare, and this is the one you'll be coming back to. Böhm was the least glamorous of conductors, but he approaches the Ninth with messianic zeal and a fanatical gleam in his eye. The opening movement is a cataclysm, the sublime slow movement never loses its contemplative flow, and everyone involved simply sings and plays the pants off of the finale. If the final minute or two doesn't pull you right out of your seat, nothing will. Grab it while you can at this "twofer" price. It's a steal. –David Hurwitz

Karl Böhm's Vienna Philharmonic Beethoven cycle is Deutsche Grammophon's best kept secret. Not only is it the finest complete set of Beethoven symphonies in their catalog, it's also far and away the best recorded, and to make matters even more irresistible, it's also the least expensive (it's available on three "twofer" sets). These performances are typical: weighty, intense, powerful, and magnificently played. Listen especially to the (comparatively) neglected Fourth Symphony: if Böhm doesn't convince you that this is major Beethoven, then no one can.
