How many CDs do you need for the whole of Beethoven?main
Especially when they keep finding new fragments.
Deutsche Grammophon gave the answer today.
In November it will be issuing a 123-disc Beethoven – The New Complete Edition, replete with several rarities.
Lang Lang will play the obscure Menuett in C major (WoO 218) and Daniel Hope performs the last notes Beethoven wrote before his death.
Andris Nelsons and the Vienna Philharmonic will record the nine symphonies, Jan Lisiecki will play the five piano concertos and Maurizio Pollini will have another go at the late sonatas.
