Synopsis

Amazon.com
Spectacular performances offer the best of Beethoven from DG's Originals series. You get Carlos Kleiber's legendary recordings of the Fifth and Seventh Symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic, Karajan's first DG Beethoven Ninth (he did three of them, with decreasing success), and Wilhelm Kempff's magisterial versions of the Fourth and Fifth piano concertos. There are many, many distinguished performances of all this music, but few which offer this degree of excellence at such a favorable price. In every respect, this is a superb collection--and if you don't have these performances, now's the time to act. A great gift idea, too. --David Hurwitz

A great set!
11/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The four CDs in this set were the first classical music CDs I ever bought, and they were a great choice. The music, including the famous Fifth Symphony and the equally great Seventh, is beautiful, and the sound quality is very good. This set has good variety, from the soft, mellow piano sonatas to the exciting symphonies."
