If you love Beethoven - West-Eastern Divan Orchestra is the best!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven for All - Symphonies 1- 9 [+digital booklet] (MP3 Download)
I first caught the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra on TV performing Beethoven's 9th on the Proms and was blown away by them. Since then, it's my preference to only listen to Beethoven's work by them. I've listened to others orchestra's but nothing seems to capture the emotion, the beauty and magnificence of the original work as they do.
I'm often moved to tears listening to their recording of Beethoven's 9th. To me, if you're going to listen to the works of Beethoven at it's best, then this is the recording for you.
