MusicAeterna's recording of Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 is the long-awaited sister-recording to Teodor Currentzis' and musicAeterna's Beethoven Symphony No. 5 album. Recorded at the Vienna Konzerthaus in August 2018, both albums are the Russia-based musicians' seminal contribution to the composer's 250th anniversary celebrations.

For Currentzis, the Seventh has 'the greatest form ever achieved in a symphony'. He compares its structural perfection to that of the Athenian classic, the zenith of Classical architecture in which every proportion and every refinement of scale is placed in the service of a spiritual beauty honouring the city's protector, the goddess Athena.
