BEETHOVEN 2020 : THE NEW COMPLETE EDITION

À plus d’un an du 250ème anniversaire de la naissance de Beethoven (Bonn, 16 décembre 1770), les éditeurs fourbissent déjà leurs coffrets. Le premier à dégaîner Universal (Deutsche Grammophon Decca) propose rien de moins qu’une nouvelle édition complète de l’oeuvre intégrale du compositeur allemand en 118 CD, 3 Blue Ray, 2 DVD.

Ne pas croire cependant qu’il s’agit de nouveaux enregistrements, sauf pour certaines raretés. Plutôt d’une habile compilation du fonds considérable accumulé par la Deutsche Grammophon, Philips et Decca. Minutages très généreux (souvent supérieurs à 80′).

3 Blue Ray Audio avec les symphonies de Karajan (1961-63), les sonates pour piano de Kempff et les quatuors par les Amadeus. 2 DVD (Fidelio/Bernstein et les symphonies 4 et 7 dirigées par Carlos Kleiber au Concertgebouw)
