Notes and Editorial Reviews

For the Beethoven symphonies the Seraphim label turned to Rudolf Kempe and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra... For the Choral Symphony Giulini's LSO version (with Armstrong, Reynolds, Tear and Shirley-Quirk an excellent team of soloists) was chosen, also from the early 1970s... The Pastoral is comparably warm and satisfying, and Giulini's Ninth, forwardly balanced, comes over strongly and vividly, although the first movement is slower than usual.

-- Gramophone [11/1995]
