Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[The Beethoven 5] is a live recording from June 1943... The finale is perhaps the most powerful and strongly projected of the three [available recordings Furtwängler made of the 5th Symphony]..." -- John Quinn, MusicWeb International

"Among the best items in this set [is] the propulsive Beethoven Seventh symphony..., display[ing] the conductor's remarkable combination of excitement and solid musicianship as well as his skill at highlighting the music's inner drama..." -- Victor Carr Jr., ClassicsToday.com [reviewing DG 471289]
