Emmanuel Krivine's Beethoven: 'You’re convinced that what you're hearing is the only way this music should ever sound'Fabrice Dell'Anese

This week we’ve a brilliant, budget-priced box of Beethoven symphonies played on authentic instruments. It’ll remind you of how much fun there is to be had with this most iconic of composers.

And there’s an entertaining, educative DVD featuring a conductor who’s in his element when addressing an audience.
