Recorded live in concert at the new DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, this exclusive DVD box set combines Frühbeck de Burgos' powerful interpretation of the complete symphonies by Ludwig van Beethoven with his spectacular renderings of Symphonie fantastique by Hector Berlioz and Richard Strauss' Eine Alpensinfonie as well as Joaquín Rodrigo's popular Concierto de Aranjuez, featuring the world-renowned Spanish guitarist Pepe Romero.

"Fruhbeck was of mixed European heritage, and he pays homage to his Spanish half with Rodrigo's most famous concerto. The orchestra is pared down to an intimate 20 strings and double winds. Pepe Romero has recorded this many times since the 1970s and plays it as if he composed it himself, with utter conviction and effortless facility, spontaneous and subtle-his seamless alternation of nails and fingertips is exquisite. …It's a really gorgeous performance" American Record Guide
