Notes and Editorial Reviews

...an exciting Ninth sporting fantastically buoyant strings in the Scherzo and a marvelously well sung finale... [6/23/2002]

reviewing the complete Beethoven symphonies box set, Brilliant 99793


...The long arch that reaches from the first to the last note in the Ninth Symphony keeps you gently smiling throughout even if you’ve listened to the work a couple too many times to still be astounded by its grandeur and original novelty.
