Beethoven: The Complete Symphony Collection
London Symphony Orchestra & Josef Krips

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.
9th isn't worth it
Very poor quality recorded at the start of the last movement of teh 9th symphony - don't buy, if this is of any importance to you.
Very poor quality
spoilt by the ridiculous hissing!!! find another recording to buy!!!
great music - poor conversion
I love Beethoven. I justs a shame the QC is so poor in places.
