The Symphonies (Blu-ray)

Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos

★★★★ “A very welcome and important tribute” Pizzicato

The Spanish Maestro Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos concluded his acclaimed international conducting career of almost six decades with two memorable years as the Principal Conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. Recorded live in concert at the new DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, this new, compact Blu-ray box set combines Frühbeck de Burgos’ interpretation of the complete Symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven with his renderings of Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz and Richard Strauss’ Eine Alpensinfonie as well as Joaquín Rodrigo’s popular Concierto de Aranjuez, featuring the world-renowned Spanish guitarist Pepe Romero.

Symfonierne er indspillet over to år i DR Koncerthuset, hvor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos stod i spidsen for DR SymfoniOrkestret indtil kort før sin død.

The box set includes a 100-page booklet with an extensive essay by the Danish composer and writer Karl Aage Rasmussen, who authoritatively takes the reader through Beethoven's nine Symphonies. The book is presented in four languages – English and Danish as well as Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos's own languages German and Spanish.
