Notes & Reviews:

This truly fantastic live set of the complete Beethoven symphonies plus select overtures as played by the Philharmonia Orchestra in Vienna in 1960 under the direction of the legendary conductor Otto Klemperer has now returned to the Andromeda catalog in completely re-mastered, superb 24bit/96kHz sound, taken directly from the original master tapes. It always a fascinating pastime to compare Klemperer's live performances with his studio recordings of the identical works from the same period, as these come from around the time of his famous EMI late-'50s recordings with the same orchestra.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: 05/29/1960; 05/31/1960; 06/02/1960; 06/04/1960; 06/07/1960.
