A Survey of Beethoven Symphony Cycles: Alphabetical Index



Discographies on ionarts: Bach Organ Cycles | Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycles I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX | Beethoven Symphony Cycles Index | Beethoven String Quartet Cycles | Bruckner Symphony Cycles | Dvořák Symphony Cycles | Shostakovich Symphony Cycles | Sibelius Symphony Cycles | Mozart Keyboard Sonata Cycles



The Beethoven Symphonies
A Survey of Complete* Recordings



This is the alphabetical listing of every Beethoven Symphony Cycle that has been recorded. At least that's the ambition. This will go together with a much more detailed survey that will be created bit-by-bit over the next weeks. That survey is referred to as the "main page" below. The style has yet to be determined - whether similar to the piano sonata survey or the string quartet survey or the previous symphony surveys (Sibelius, Dvořák, DSCH) or in a new format altogether. On that or those main page(s), the recordings are (going to be) listed in chronological order. The ionarts-logo under "QuickLinks" takes you to the appropriate page where the releases and their editions are presented in greater detail - when the relevant pages are up. (Notice will be given on this page when that is the case.) The flags take you to the respective Amazon page; the global logo takes you to the relevant Amazon listing in your (browsing-) country. Those links are already active. Amazon links to alternate versions of the same recording (or lists with links to the individual recordings where no set is available) will be found on the main respective main page. Cycles with multiple conductors can be found under V for "Various". At the bottom of the table, you will find the recordings of the Liszt piano transcriptions of the Beethoven Symphonies. Recommendations you will find on the main page. *A few cycles are not entirely complete or have not yet been finished but are underway or were never thought of as integrals, but cobbled together after the fact. Where that is the case, mention has been made on the main page. Ed.: Thanks to Hiro Miyashita, Dennis Bade & Christoph Schlüren for helpful corrections, hinters, additions, and links! Celibidache, Matacic, Weil, Frühbeck de Burgos, P.Jordan and a few other overlooked cycles have been added.

#BecomeOcean
The most hyped album of 2015, but plenty enjoyable in its way. A 21st-century Watermusicke.

#8 is spectacular here; #6 terrific. #5 suffers from inaudible opening double bass pizzicatos, sadly; #9 is strong as a bull.

His Vienna/@Lboesendorfer cycle. op.111, after what was probably his last recital at age 90!

(Check the Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle Survey on ionarts for more details and links to every such cycle ever recorded.)
