Notes and Editorial Reviews

This label is quickly establishing itself as one of the world's finest historical labels and with this recording of the Beethoven 9th, one can see why. The transfer engineer Mr. K. Yasuhara has taken a world class performance (in fact in some people's opinion the finest Beethoven 9th ever recorded), selected the finest Japanese Columbia pressings and produced the finest sounding recording this great performance has ever had.
