Notes and Editorial Reviews

These are hybrid Super Audio CDs playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

'simply masterful Beethoven ... Capped by a magisterial account of the Ninth Symphony, this is the Beethoven set for our time. Even if you already have umpteen other recordings of these works, you owe it to yourself to hear this new set. It's a deeply satisfying musical experience'
