The Ninth Straight UpNovember 10, 2013By Matthew Brown (Saint Augustine, FL)See All My Reviews"Here is purity of tempo, phrasing and detail. This is the finest Beethoven Ninth of which I am aware. You will get an overall experience not an episodic one that is so common, there is no bravura here. It is a performance enhanced by a wonderful recording, you hear as the conductor intended not heavy handed recording engineers with too many sliders and dials. Embrace this musically and technically pure performance. I have the vinyl of this which is wonderful also but this CD is close to that experience."Report Abuse
