Notes & Reviews:

Sir Thomas Beecham has been exceptionally well served by BBC Legends (this is the twelfth Beecham release on the label) though in almost all cases these live performances mirrored studio (commercial) recordings. This is a very important release because Beecham conducted Beethoven Symphony No.9 infrequently and never recorded it commercially for any company. This is the first time it has been issued officially with the agreement of Lady Beecham and will be very much sought after by collectors.
