Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
The First Symphony receives one of the most enjoyable performances I have heard for a long time, and one of the most detailed.
These are refreshingly "straight" but compelling accounts of both symphonies, scrupulously observant of Beethoven's dynamic markings and wonderfully transparent...Boyd sustains a remarkably expansive Funeral March, the emotional climax of the Eroica and the crowning achievement of this remarkable, collectable disc.
Boyd draws lean, elegant playing in the classical mould...It's as if every hint of Beethoven the Romantic revolutionary has been excised.
