“Gloriously cleansed, rhythmically extremely clear, sometimes at lightning speed, the sound dynamics are perfectly polished right through to the accompaniment.”
Peter Stalder in Der Standard
At styriarte 2007 Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducted Beethoven's “Mass in C major” and his symphony no. 5. This production is now available in the second edition of styriarte festival edition. A very informative DVD-book with a great photo series (taken by Werner Kmetitsch) is added to the double DVD. The DVDs show the recording of the concert at the Helmut-List-Halle as well as the “making of” by Günter Schilhan, filmed at the rehearsals of the 5th symphony, which documents Harnoncourt´s fascinating work (with German, English and Spanish subtitles).
