If there was a question as to why the world needs another recorded Beethoven cycle, Noseda gamely offered the first few notes of an answer.
– Washington Post

The National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and Music Director Gianandrea Noseda conclude their journey of releasing the complete Beethoven Symphonies on February 9, 2024 when Symphony No. 9 and Beethoven: The Complete Symphonies are released on digital streaming platforms.

Capturing the complete Beethoven Symphonies was a multi-year project, with the performances and recordings spanning the 2021–2022 and 2022–2023 seasons. The recordings of Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3 were released in 2022, followed by Nos. 4 & 5, 6 & 8, and 2 & 7 in 2023. Symphony No. 9 was recorded with special guest artists Camilla Tilling (soprano), Kelley O’Connor (mezzo-soprano), Issachah Savage (tenor), Ryan McKinny (bass-baritone), and the Washington Chorus.

These performances and recordings have earned critical acclaim. The Washington Post said, “If there was a question as to why the world needs another recorded Beethoven cycle, Noseda gamely offered the first few notes of an answer.” Washington Classical Review said the performance of No. 2 was “undeniably fresh and thrilling.” BBC Music Magazine praised the recordings of Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5 as having been played with “an energizing injection of sheer excitement.” The Washington Post praised the performance of Symphony No. 7 in May of 2023 as “powerful” and “rousing.”

Beethoven’s voice is as fresh and powerful today as it was when he created those masterpieces. To approach Beethoven is a journey. You know you are starting the journey, but you never know where the journey will take you. With Beethoven, any moment is a discovery.”
– Gianandrea Noseda

The cover designs for this cycle feature the work of Kennedy Center Education Artist-in-Residence Mo Willems. Inspired by the genius of Ludwig van Beethoven, Willems created a series of large-scale abstractions influenced by each of the composer’s nine symphonies.
