Beethoven’s unusual cantata Der glorreiche Augenblick is filled with patriotic praise for Vienna and tributes to the kings and princes of Europe after the defeat of Napoleon.
This remarkable and distinctive piece is rarely performed and seldom recorded, and its appearance on Naxos with such distinguished forces as the RPO and Hilary Davan Wetton makes it an obvious choice for seekers of fresh Beethoven material.
Naxos is 25 this year and to celebrate we will be oﬀering a diﬀerent free download and 25% oﬀ sale every month.

Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra is one of his greatest works, and a brilliant display vehicle for the instrumental virtuosity of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.
Acclaimed conductor Marin Alsop has an impressive Bartók pedigree: “Alsop’s structural command of [Bartók’s music] is absolute, her transitions confident and dramatic.” Independent on Sunday www.naxos.com
