 Excellent Beethoven 2 an 5 February 27, 2015 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "Drahos and the Esterhazy orchestra do a very fine job with both these symphonies. The playing is transparent, lively, and very precise, with reasonable tempos, as are the other Beethoven symphonies in Drahos' series. Naxos provides excellent sound. I found this disk very enjoyable for repeated listening." Report Abuse
