During a series of live concerts in the Golden Hall of Vienna's Musikverein (May 2002), a journey
unique in the Wiener Philharmoniker's long and distinguished history reached its conclusion. This
thrilling 5-CD set of Beethoven's complete symphonies is the fruit of that journey. The recordings of
Beethoven's complete symphonies were made live after numerous performances of the individual
symphonies and complete cycles in Tokyo, Berlin and Vienna.
