5.0 out of 5 stars amazed, 23 Feb 2007
This review is from: Beethoven: Complete Symphonies 1-9 (Audio CD)
Reading the review above makes me want to write a review here for the first time. Who knows what that listener wanted...for me, this is simply a most wonderful series, with such clear, bold playing (especially in the unison passages). The dance figures are fresh and alive, and when the whole band gets going, the effect is like a landscape dancing. The detail and clarity of the playing is a marvel. For me, it was a conversion, after years of trying to love these pieces, but hearing them usually played, I guess, with either sententiousness or big-hair over-heightening of the romanticism. A lovely piece of playing which leaves the intelligence of the writing to speak for itself, and doesn't force anything.
