Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine (No. 6)
The sound is excellent [... ] the finale has beautifully light pointing and delicate playing from the Vienna Philharmonic.

Gramophone Magazine (No. 3)
The first movement has a genuine sense of flow [... ] The Decca transfer is smoother than the RCA original.

Gramophone Magazine (Nos. 1 & 8)
The development has genuine tension, accents are light and the strings have just the right weight of tone [... ] the playing of the Vienna strings is splendidly alert and sensitive.

Gramophone Magazine (No. 4)
Straightforward and lively, very well played ... the performance communicates a genuine sense of enjoyment.

Gramophone Magazine (No. 7)
A lively, slightly lightweight performance, reaching its zenith in the finale [... ] the recording is bright and quite full.

Gramophone Magazine (No. 2)
Monteux's version of Beethoven's Second Symphony is immensely likeable and I cannot think of another version more liveable with. It has freshness and buoyancy [... ] The sound too is admirable - clear and lively, yet truthful in perspective and with no lack of body.

MusicWeb Internationa (No. 9)
This is a performance I shall come back to often. It is definitely among the Ninths that count.
