This review is from: Beethoven: Complete Symphonies (Audio CD)
A brilliant realisation of Beethoven - neither too dry nor over-indulgent. Each symphony comes to life so vividly that it seems to step out of the CD player and right into the room.
The first, fourth, and ninth are stunning performances, but to be honest there is no weak link in the chain. And the sleeve notes (by Lindsay Kemp) are first rate.
If you've never encountered Beethoven then this set is an introduction to his genius that will blow you away.
