Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Symphony No. 9, from his complete Vienna Philharmonic symphony cycle, remains one of the great performances for its bold concept, brilliant execution, and overall sense of drama. From first note to last, Bernstein is alive to every inflection, every nuance in Beethoven's score (even a few that aren't, like the string portamentos in the Adagio). For the finale Bernstein assembled a quartet of soloists whose individual timbres make for some unusually piquant combined textures. Best of all is Kurt Moll, whose exquisitely beautiful voice rings with the same humanity and depth of feeling that made him such a fine Gurnemanz for Karajan."

--Victor Carr Jr., ClassicsToday.com Reviewing reissue of the the 9th
