Although over 35 yours old, this recording of Beethoven's Sixth is truly sublime. The playing of the Vienna Philharmonic is superb, and the pianissimi in the slow movement are breathtaking. Böhm's tempi are ideal, and expressively flexible. This is no whistle-stop tour of the countryside from an air-conditioned coach; you feel you are out in the open and free to linger in the most beautiful areas, take part in the peasants' lively dance, and run from the approaching storm. Many performances of the Pastoral are dull, but not this one!

The Schubert Fifth is also a very good performance, although I wish DG had been able to put Böhm's exquisite "Unfinished" together with the Beethoven on this CD.

This recording 1971 of Beethovens 6th is one of Karl Böhms greatest recordings. His reading of this symphony is glorius and it remains one of the finest of the work ever recorded. The sound quality is splended. A real desert island CD. Buy it.

Bohm's Pastoral with the Vienna Philharmonic has always stood high amongst recommended recordings. It is leisurely but never boring - not for a single second - being full of incident and glorious glowing sound. Even today when our sympathies are for much faster and more shocking Beethoven - although Harnoncourt also treats the Pastoral in a leisurely and flowing way - Bohm's account sounds so right. The Schubert account here is also very good.

Format: Audio CD
This particular recording of Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony has been regarded as the top recommendation by critics since it was first released. For me, that has tended to be a reason to avoid. I always have a fear of being disappointed.

I am working through my collection of LPs in alphabetical order and have just reaquainted myself with this recording (I don't know the Schubert recording so am just commenting on the Beethoven). My fear was that it might be a tad too tame or sleepy and lack the more revolutionary fire that other conductors have brought to it. Knowing about Beethoven's despair at at the gradual loss of his hearing and his revolutionary tendencies, a middle of the road performance like this one may seem less relevant to modern listeners.

I had no need to worry. I think it is a marvellous interpretation. The Vienna Philharmonic play like gods, absolutely gorgeous string tone and lovely piquant wind playing. I did find that the storm movement lacked the kind of violent edge that other conductors bring to this section of the work but it is still exciting. This is just wonderful music making from an orchestra and conductor with complete understanding of the music and each other and I would recommend anyone to listen to it.

This is a glorious recording made in 1971. I used to have the original LP version a long time ago. By the time of the recording, Bohm was very old and he probably let the orchestra play as they wanted. The VPO, of course, excels in Viennese classics and this sunny programme music totally suites their style.

The tempi in the first and the second movements are slightly slower than the recordings by other well-known conductors. Although this may not be to every listener's taste, I think it is appropriate, given the happy and serene feelings the composer depicted while staying in the countryside outside Vienna in summer. The second movement ("Scene by the brook") has a tempo marking of "Andante molto mosso". How wonderfully the VPO plays this movement, using subtle rubato! No other recordings I have listened to so far - with the possible exception of Erich Kleiber and Reiner - are as expressive as the present Bohm version.

The rest of the work is also performed marvellously. The final movement is an apotheosis of the nature that Beethoven worshipped. I have listened to many different recordings so far, but no other version can match the present Bohm's version.

I bought this recording largely on the review of Musica Vita and others extolling it. I already have the Norrington recordings of the Beethoven symphonies, but the Pastoral symphony to me stands out - at least for the first three and last movements - among his symphonies as depicting a mood of joyful relaxation. The Norrington performance takes the first movement at a breakneck speed - the "coach ride through the countryside!" - and I think he saw the temp marking "Allegro" and didn't go on to read the "ma non troppo"!! I just could not listen to it anymore!!

The Pastoral symphony was one of the first classical works I knew. My parents gave me an LP in the mid 1950s of a performance by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra under William Steinberg and rightly or wrongly that has always been my benchmark for the work. At the age of 10 I knew every note of the work!! I wanted to find a performance that lived up to that and so bought the Bohm recording. It is a superlative performance. I must say that I was a little disappointed that the opening phrase of the first movement did not tail off with a slight ralentando, and thought that maybe having bought this recording I was in for yet another roller coaster ride!! However that was my first and last disappointment! The first movement is just that sunny joy at being away from the hustle and bustle of life and enjoying the smells and sounds and sights of countryside. The tempo is just right and also for the slow movement. Some reviewers said it was slow but never ever does it drag. Instead every nuance and shading is uplifting through to the bird song calls at the end of the movement. The third movement is also at a fairly steady tempo but rightly so as these are heavy footed lumbering peasants dancing to the village band.
