This is the start of a Beethoven Symphonies cycle (Nos. 1-9) with Christian Thielemann and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. The Beethoven cycle of the 21st century!
3 Documentaries - In a one-hour-long film for each symphony Maestro Thielemann and Joachim Kaiser (Germany´s most famous music critic) discuss and analyze in an entertaining conversational exchange Thielemann’s interpretation, complemented by excerpts from rehearsals as well as comparisons of Beethoven cycles with Karajan, Bernstein etc. – no aspect of Beethoven’s symphonic œuvre will remain unaffected!
The Wave Pictures are an english band consisting of David Tattersall (vocals & guitar), Franic Rozycki (bass guitar) and Jonny Helm (drums). Susan Rode The Cyclone is their fourth official album release and their second for Little Teddy Recordings. The Wave Pictures do not tire of playing their contagious cheek on whatever stage allows them to do so, in fact they make the most of the quiet moments between touring to go into the studio and come out with a collection of cheeky and playful songs in which folk and pop come together completely naturally. Still not satisfied with recording the brilliant "Instant Coffee Baby" (2008) and "If You Leave It Alone" (2009), now "Susan Rode The Cyclone" (2010) confirms they are in top form with its stripped-down sound and witty lyrics, the scratching guitars, the overwhelming choruses.
