Notes & Reviews:

Beethoven's Symphony No.3, subtitled 'Eroica,' was revolutionary in many ways. From the depth and density of its thematic content to its powerful emotional effect on listeners, the symphony was one of the most groundbreaking works of the Romantic period. This reissue from Alia Vox presents a classic performance by Jordi Savall, leading his ensemble Le Concert des Nations.

Early Music Review, 1st April 2016
It still has the ability to make one sit up and take note, whether it be the brilliance of the woodwind tone, the shimmering tremolo strings with cutting cross-accents driving the music forward like some sort of life-bringing juggernaut that refuses to be ignored; perhaps for the first time, I heard what my university lecturers meant by the shock value of "Eroica", and Savall does all of this without milking each of the many dramatic moments.

For me it is a triumph and I cannot praise this too strongly. The superb notes, three essays covering eleven pages for each language, and excellent illustrations, add to the value of the issue.
