This review is from: Beethoven: Symphonies 1-9 & Overtures (Audio CD)
A terrific set of Beethoven symphonies by a great conductor and a top flight orchestra in his finest hour. Szell brought the Cleveland orchestra to its highest level during the late fifties and early sixties, and these recordings catch the orchestra at a peak. Love all of them, no real peaks and certainly no troughs. Now my first choice modern Beethoven set. Sound is early stereo but perfectly acceptable, played on a decent CD player and system.
