Ludwig van Beethoven: The Nine Symphonies, Coriolan & Egmont Overtures – Wiener Philharmoniker, Christian Thielemann (HD 1080p)
















Christian Thielemann, one of the most recognized conductors of our time, joins forces with the prestigious Wiener Philharmoniker and Unitel Classica, the world's leading audiovisual production company for classical music, in a monumental project: BEETHOVEN 9, the recording of all nine symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven for TV, DVD and New Media: the "Beethoven cycle of the 21st century"!

Using the newest technology of our century, Unitel Classica and Austrian Television (ORF) produce this "super-cycle" in the Golden Hall of Vienna's Musikverein in HD and 5.0 Surround Sound. BEETHOVEN 9 kicked off in December 2008 with the recording of the First and Second Symphonies.

BEETHOVEN 9 brings to a new climax the longstanding collaboration between Thielemann, who enjoys a sterling reputation as an interpreter of Beethoven and the German Romantics, and the Wiener Philharmoniker, which has been cultivating the music of Beethoven since its founding nearly 170 years ago and is one of the few great orchestras to have preserved its unique sound. Unitel Classica can look back on more than 40 years of collaboration with the Wiener Philharmoniker and on its pioneering cycles of Beethoven's symphonic works with Herbert von Karajan and Leonard Bernstein.

Christian Thielemann has spent most of his career in the major opera houses of Germany, earning a reputation as one of the finest conductors of the operas of Wagner and Richard Strauss. He has been, especially in the new century, active in the concert hall, as well, particularly in repertory from the Germanic sphere, with a focus on works by Mozart, Beethoven, Weber, Schumann (the complete symphonies), Brahms, and Bruckner. While he has built much of his reputation in Germany, he has hardly avoided the limelight elsewhere, leading performances at the Met, San Francisco Opera, Vienna State Opera, Covent Garden, and the major Italian opera houses. Like many other conductors, he has generated a measure of controversy, owing to clashes with management over artistic and funding issues. Thielemann has made numerous recordings for a variety of labels, including DG, Decca, EMI, Orfeo, EuroArts, and Opus Arte.

Christian Thielemann was born in Berlin, Germany, on April 1, 1959. He studied piano, harpsichord, and viola in his youth and later enrolled in the Karajan Academy. He played viola in the German Youth Orchestra and became an assistant to Karajan at 19. Thielemann debuted with the Berlin Philharmonic as a harpsichordist in 1980.

In 1985 Thielemann was appointed principal conductor of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dusseldorf. Three years later he became general music director at the Nuremberg Opera. His U.S. debut came at the San Francisco Opera in 1991, conducting Strauss' Elektra.

Thielemann was appointed principal guest conductor of the Teatro Comunale of Bologna in 1993. In 1997 Thielemann accepted the post of general music director at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. He debuted at the 2000 Bayreuth Festival in Wagner's Die Meistersinger. Meanwhile, conflicts with management at the Deutsche Oper were brewing, and Thielemann departed in 2004, three years sooner than expected.

From 2004 he began serving as music director of the Munich Philharmonic, with a contract running through 2011. In 2008 Thielemann was named chief musical advisor at Bayreuth, becoming in all but name the festival director. With Thielemann's 2012 appointment as music director of the Saxon State Opera and its sibling ensemble, the Dresden State Orchestra, he has clearly emerged as one of the foremost German conductors of his generation. Among his later recordings are a pair of Opus Arte DVDs, from 2010, of Wagner's Die Walküre and Das Rheingold, both taken from live 2008 Bayreuth Festival performances.
