Last year, Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons fulfilled his heart’s desire and performed all of Beethoven’s symphonies together with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in one of the world’s most beautiful concert halls – the Suntory Hall in Tokyo. Ulrike Schwarz was the recording and mixing engineer for this immense project. A total of 67 stringed instruments made the trip (34 violins, 13 violas, 11 cellos, and 9 basses), plus 23 brass instruments, and a full complement of wind. Nor is this just "any" orchestra. In 2008, Gramophone placed the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra sixth in the world, ahead of numerous (far) more fancied competitors.
