Not really for me,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 (Eroica) / Symphony No. 8 (Audio CD)
I know that many think more highly of this than I do. Indeed I bought it because I knew that many rate it highly but, really, I have been disappointed. It seems to me rather severe. So it doesn't smile as it could have in the 8th. And the Eroica seems to lack intensity and power as well as poise. I have enjoyed so many (and such varied) accounts of these works more than I enjoy these. Of course, these are in no way bland or lacking in character. They just don't do that much for me.
