Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 28th March 2013
Separating these performances from the circumstances in which they took place may be impossible - the booklet includes a photographs of FurtwSngler conducting in Berlin, with Hitler and Goebbels sitting in the front row - but there is some remarkable music-making here, especially the surging, majestic Eroica, the exaggeratedly romantic Fourth and the furious, frantic Ninth.

The finest World War II performances of Beethoven's symphonies under Furtwangler's baton. Previously released versions on the Music & Arts label were acclaimed in Fanfare, American Record Guide, Pulse!, Absolute Sound, Diapason, Musica, and numerous other journals. The Ninth Symphony has been completely re-mastered for this edition from a new source and sounds superior to any prior issue!
