Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Masur's performances of the Overtures are more direct than Karajan, satisfying in their lack of mannerism... Marriner and the Academy offer a splendid foil with the dance music. Even as a composer of light music, Beethoven was a master." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs "Masur's performances of the Overtures are more direct than Karajan, satisfying in their lack of mannerism...
