Notes & Reviews:

Tahra's first SACD is a new mastering of their "signature" CD, which won the label a Gramophone Award in 1995 and has been a perennial bestseller. The great Wilhelm Furtwangler wrote of Beethoven's masterwork, "The Ninth Symphony is pure music through and through... the first movement alone is a self-contained musical universe... the finale bursts upon us as the ultimate antithesis and synthesis, that puts everything that has come before into proper perspective, unleashing in all their fury, the tragic and Dionysian forces contained within the music."
