"Revered for their fresh interpretations of familiar works and pioneering of lesser-known music, the London-based Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, founded by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, has won numerous international awards and produced more than 250 recordings, including all the Beethoven and Schumann symphonies as well as the music of Verdi, Mendelssohn, Berlioz and Weber. Worldwide accolades followed the orchestra's Archiv recordings of the complete Beethoven symphonies, viewed by many as the most important Beethoven recordings since the arrival of the CD."
