Notes and Editorial Reviews

Original CD issue, now rare and out-of print!

"Leonard Bernstein's DG Beethoven cycle has withstood the test of time and remains one of the finest sets available... There have been more than a few excellent cycles appearing since this one, including Barenboim, Wand, and the terrific new Norrington on Hänssler, but when all is said and done you simply can't go wrong with this set."[8/5/2004] --David Hurwitz
