Beethoven’s colossal Cantata on the Death of Emperor Jospeh II for chorus, soloists, and orchestra, and his playful, upbeat Second Symphony are combined on this powerful new live recording by 15-time Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony and Chorus. Rarely performed and recorded, the gripping and profoundly moving funeral cantata, composed by a teenage Beethoven, proved a revelation during MTT’s and the Symphony’s May 2013 Beethoven Project. Presented as a premium audio hybrid SACD, this release joins the growing critically acclaimed discography of Beethoven recordings by MTT and SFS.
