Tafelmusik presents Beethoven's landmark Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, "Eroica" - a heroic and monumental symphony originally dedicated to Napoleon, and Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 4 in A Major, "Italian".

Tafelmusik began its cycle of Beethoven symphony recordings under the direction of Maestro Weil on the Sony Classical and Analekta labels. Released recordings include the JUNO Award-winning Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6 CD, and the JUNO Award-nominated Symphonies Nos. 7 & 8 CD and DVD. During Tafelmusik's 19 year tenure as orchestra-in-residence at the Klang und Raum Festival in Irsee, Germany, Maestro Weil also directed the orchestra in internationally acclaimed performances of Beethoven symphony cycle.

Gramophone Magazine (U.K.) declared about Tafelmusik's recent Beethoven recording: "After these ultra-fresh experiences, can we ever hear modern-instrument performances without feeling that something is missing? Possibly, but Weil and his players convince us that Beethoven can sound as radical in the 21st century as he must have done in the 19th." Maestro Weil says, "We approach these Beethoven concerts as if they were the very first performance, as though the music had been composed yesterday. This is the real thing - there's no sense of routine with Tafelmusik musicians and everybody's giving their all for this music, playing with a full heart and a full soul and spirit. That is the secret to a great performance."
