Symphony No. 4 Pastorale - Kancheli: Dixi
- Featured: BEETHOVEN / JANSONS / BAVARIAN RADIO SYMPHONY ORCH
- Release Date: 10/9/2015
The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks has already performed Beethoven symphony cycles on several occasions. Mariss Jansons has now extended the cycle concept in two respects: with works specially commissioned from contemporary composers, who have contributed their own musical reflections on Beethoven symphonies, and by presenting these outstanding concert events on the record market as a series of live recordings. Following the excellent response from critics and audiences for the award-winning Complete Edition (BR-KLASSIK, 900119), BR-KLASSIK now also presents Beethoven's symphonies on individual CDs. In addition to the live recording of the "Pastorale" by Ludwig van Beethoven from Munich's Herkulessaal in 2012, the production includes a contribution from the Georgian composer Giya Kancheli (born 1935), whose work "Dixi" ("I have spoken") for choir and orchestra is oriented towards Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and was first performed in 2009.
