The release of Bernard Haitink’s new cycle of the Beethoven symphonies has been one of the most talked about classical events of 2006. Over recent years many people had questioned whether another complete set of Beethoven’s symphonies would ever be recorded. But Haitink’s revelatory recordings have demonstrated why fresh new interpretations of the Beethoven’s music are so important and why the composer’s music is still so relevent today.

BBC Radio 3 CD Review, Symphony No 9
