Notes and Editorial Reviews

Beethoven’s most amiable symphony is given a polished performance by the RPO, which also appends the Egmont Overture with a lively, dramatic flourish. The release is among the first of a new series of bargain-price discs that will feature the orchestra playing such familiar items as The Four Seasons, The Planets, Ravel’s Boléro, and so on. One could raise a few quibbles about this Pastoral – for me, the Andante is a step too leisurely, the overall sound a shade too lush – but basically this is a strong, assured version.
