Kent Nagano leads the Montreal Symphony Orchestra on this album of Beethoven symphonies, the final volume of their project to record the complete cycle of Beethoven symphonies. Nagano calls these two symphonies "peculiar retreats" from the composer’s other symphonic works.

Kent Nagano:

"Where the symphonies that preceded them has each taken two or three steps forward, the Master stops, takes a step back, disengages from his boldness, risk-taking and pioneering attacks and advances anew in an almost classical measure."
