4.0 out of 5 stars An American Orchestra that understands Beethoved!, 13 Jun 2012
David Allsopp "philologus" (Leighton Buzzard, England) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven: The Complete Symphonies (MP3 Download)
I don't mean to sound down on the American Orchestras, I think they are the best in the world, but sometimes they miss the foibles of European composers. Here though, Muti brings this understanding to the party and combined with the lush sound of the Philadelphia this is a first class cycle.

It's clearly not for the period enthusiasts but then who says Beethoven would have wanted his symphonies to always sound the same? The acid test is that they are well recorded and powerful in themselves. I recommend them to go alongside any other Beethoven cycle, of which there are hundreds!
