Notes & Reviews:

Live performance of Beethoven's iconic Fifth Symphony and Coriolan Overture by the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Klaus Tennstedt in the early 1990s. Rarely can one hear such freedom and intensity combined with such success as it is here in Tennstedt's Beethoven Fifth. The best of Tennstedt's abilities are heard in live concert recordings like this one. He was a musician of dynamism and spontaneous inspiration, and these performances are a reminder of the commitment and expressive intensity he extracts from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, with which he held such a strong relationship throughout his tenure as Principal Conductor and beyond.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The Reference label has a reputation for audiophile sound, and their engineering team does not disappoint us. The SACD sound is every bit as spectacular as what BIS's engineers produced for the Minnesota cycle. The bass is substantial and firm and not muddy, and the top of the orchestra smooth and clean and clear, without a hint of stridency. Spatial placement of the sections of the orchestra is outstanding. Even in the churning coda of the Seventh or the transition to the finale of the Fifth, individual voices are never lost in the overall sound. The Coriolan Overture from February 23, 1992, in Royal Festival Hall.
