 Another Race to the Finish by Mr. Gardiner December 15, 2012 By Dan E. (Fredericksburg, VA) See All My Reviews "Mr. Gardiner continues his effort to hip-hop the classical reportoire with this recording. His performances often sound as though he has somewhere he needs to be and wants to get this recording done as quickly as possible. That is the case here. If you are a modern person in a hurry who doesn't have time to waste listening to classical recordings performed in a dignified, proper tempo, then this is your cup of tea. Otherwise, there are many, many superior performances of the Beethoven 9th." Report Abuse
