Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kurt Masur's earlier anologue Beethoven cycle has much to recommend it in its natural, unforced expressiveness and finely disciplined playing. The Eroica is exceptionally fine, particularly its nobly paced slow movement, and in the Fourth Symphony Masur is marvellously alert. -- Penguin Guide [2003/4] Kurt Masur's earlier anologue Beethoven cycle has much to recommend it in its natural, unforced expressiveness and finely disciplined playing.
