 MTT and the SF Symphony get it right December 28, 2012 By D. Simmons (Virginia Beach, VA) See All My Reviews "I have 191 recordings of the Eroica (yeah, I know - so sue me!). This is in my top ten and perhaps my top five. The recording is superb - not too close, open, with realistic timbres. The speeds and balances could hardly be bettered. Buy without a qualm."
