Product No.:

180 Gram Vinyl Record

No. of Discs: 9

180 Gram LP

Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the February 2012 issue of Stereophile

Numbered, limited edition deluxe box set features nine LPs pressed on 180-gram vinyl. Cut by Hendrik Pauler and pressed at Pallas in Germany. Exceptional acoustic brilliance!

This is really like the good old days — a new complete Beethoven cycle on vinyl LP! Of course, Andreas Spreer also had several Beethoven symphonies pressed on vinyl for Tacet (each of which is also worth recommending), but now all nine are available in a high-quality box with a sturdy plastic slipcase. Inside are LPs which have been impeccably pressed by Pallas on 180-gram vinyl and a lavish, large-format 32-page booklet.

The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen is an orchestra that reacts with incredible alertness and carries out the conductor's directions with lightning speed and passion. The Kammerphilharmonie and Paavo Järvi use modern instruments — except for natural trumpets and timpani — compared to the traditional symphony orchestra, yet their reduced forces come close to the performance practice of Beethoven's day. The result is a relatively bright, transparent sound in which even seasoned Beethoven listeners can discover previously hidden musical details. This vinyl edition now surpasses all its predecessors. Played on a good hi-fi system, the timbres sound even more natural and the instruments more vivid - simply sensational.
