Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Boehm's 1971 version of the Pastoral is as fine as any, a beautiful, unforced reading, one of the best-played and (in it's day) one of the best-recorded. It still sounds fresh in its current reissue in DG's 'Originals' series with a Schubert coupling." - Penguin Guide to Classical Music - 2008 Edition, page 120 "Boehm's 1971 version of the Pastoral is as fine as any, a beautiful, unforced reading, one of the best-played and (in it's day) one of the best-recorded.

 My favorite recording of this piece December 11, 2012 By Frances A Smith (Inglewood, CA) See All My Reviews "This is from the early 70's and not only sold in a DG deluxe box set, but I'm pretty sure Time Life distributed it for a while as well-it's that good! The Schubert is perfect-the VPO sound is stunning. I prefer Bohm's Beethoven to Karajans' any day!" Report Abuse
