Klemperer Conducts Beethoven - Symphonies No 9, Etc
This Beethoven 9th was originally released by Music & Arts on MACD292 in 1986 and was newly remastered in 2006; the 8th, taken from the same concert, has not previously appeared. Critic Henry Fogel wrote of the original issue of the 9th in Fanfare: 'The Concertgebouw plays if possessed, the chorus sings in the same manner, and one listens to this performance feeling the impact of great music being performed with the deepest of emotional and intellectual conviction'.
