 I have loved this particular recording for over 2 June 10, 2014 By alice r. rogers (east los angeles, CA) See All My Reviews "I wear out my cd on a regular basis, so I expect to order this same cd again" Report Abuse
 The Ninth Straight Up November 10, 2013 By 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
