iTunes Review

This remastered collection is faithful to the original 1960 performances, which were recorded on 35mm film in order to accurately capture the orchestra. The music here is big, bright and beautiful, with full instrumentation and precise direction. It’s a perfect introduction to Beethoven’s symphony cycle, from the passionate highs and sweeping lows of "Eroica" to Symphony No. 9, fragments of which haunt the creations of so many subsequent composers as well as the scores of countless film and television works.

Customer Reviews

Ludwig lingers!

To any lover of music which shows the creative genius of the human mind, this album is a "must buy". Beethoven remains supreme for perfect music form.

Great recording!

I downloaded this album yesterday. I have been listening to and loving Beethoven's symphonies for as long as I can remember and hearing this was like listening to the music for the first time again. Sorry Dan and Di, but this is to my ears a beautifully recorded album, with absolutely none of the background hiss that plagues many other classical recordings. A gem and an absolute steal at $9.99.

What Hiss?

Normally, you get what you pay for applies all too often but I've played this on various equipment (some of it high quality) and still believe that the price is a typo. Finally I am completely satisfied with a purchase from the iTunes Store as these recordings are brilliant.

Now I just have to convince my kids that culture isn't just for old f@#ts!
