Been going through a spell of buying Naxos products recently, and this is a fine performance. The recording is well balanced, well detailed with a natural image. (Unlike the Kempe/Dresden and the last Karajan/BPO). Would it be my first choice, No. (But many of the the reviewers first choices would not be mine).
If you don't own any Heldenleben, you can do an awful lot worse than this; I shall play this lots more.
My first choice BTW, Ashkenazy/Cleveland/Decca.
