Notes & Reviews:

When Rudolf Kempe was principal conductor of the Munich Philharmonic back in the 1970's, the culmination of his long career was the recording of the complete Beethoven symphonies - an edition marked by maturity and the highest artistic standards. These recordings are one of the highlights of the Red Line series, and with this CD featuring Symphonies nos. 2 & 4 the entire set has now been reissued.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of al time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the London Classical Players, Andre Parrot, Bruno Leonardo Gelber and Libor Pesek. Every CD in the Red Line series features some of the most defining pieces in musical history.
