Notes & Reviews:

The latest exciting release in the Beethoven cycle from Bernard Haitink and the London Symphony Orchestra will undoubtedly garner praise equal to its predecessors. In the First Symphony, the influence of Haydn is strong, but already we can hear in it a fresh and individual voice. With his Fifth, Beethoven raised the expressive force of the symphonic form. "Haitink is a different, energized man, caught up in the thrill of the moment, on the podium - and it is our good fortune that these marvelous concerts will have an extended life on disc." -The Sunday Times (UK)
