The Beethoven Project

The performance and audiovisual recording of all nine Beethoven symphonies within four days at the 2009 Beethoven Festival in Bonn was a staggering achievement. Grammy Award-winning conductor Paavo Järvi led the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen in this singular project that also gave birth to a documentary and a "making of". Inspired by historical performance practice, Järvi gives a thoroughly radical, new, and thrilling reading of these familiar works with an ensemble playing on modern and historical instruments.
The film will be available to stream on Vimeo from Friday, June 12th at 4:00 pm (CDT) to Monday, June 15th at 4:00 pm (CDT).
