CD Reviews

Great Volume I of the complete Beethoven Symphonies
M. A. Scott | Kansas, USA | 12/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I didn't really know anything that Walter Weller conducted until I bought this used at Wherehouse Music about 7 years ago, but he seemed to be the real deal after I heard this first volume of the complete Beethoven Symphonies. I was never able to fully love the Eroica Symphony until I heard this particular version. The 5th Symphony is probably in the top 20% of all of the versions out there. It is paced just about right at about 33 minutes. Symphonies 1, 2, 4, and 7 are among the finest versions out there right now also. This is currently selling used on Amazon for close to $0.05 plus shipping and handling so do yourself a favor and give this Vol. I a try. You can't go wrong at that low of a price. Enjoy!!!"
6 GREAT BEETHOVEN SYMPHONIES in 1 SET
Heather L. Parisi | St. Augustine, FL USA | 11/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 3-CD set is a very reasonably priced way to get 6 must-have symphonies by Beethoven. The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Walter Weller also recorded the unabridged Beethoven symphonies including an augmented version of the unfinished 10th Symphony {"Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1-10 [BOX SET]"}.

Weller and the Birmingham Symphony very ably interpret Beethoven's symphonies with a romantic leaning which effectively portrays the strong emotion we imagine was intended by Beethoven. This set as well as the complete Beethoven Symphonic collection by Weller are both excellent choices and very good values. If you wish to sample these first, this is a very popular holding by public libraries so you may be able to borrow them first.

This 3 disk set includes the following;

DISK 1: SYMPHONY 1 in C Major, Opus 21 - 24:41
SYMPHONY 3 in E-flat Major, Opus 55 - 51:41

DISK 2: SYMPHONY 2 in D Major, Opus 36 - 34:54
SYMPHONY 5 in C Minor, Opus 67 - 33:15

DISK 3: SYMPHONY 4 in B-flat Major, Opus 60 - 34:19
SYMPHONY 7 in A Major, Opus 92 - 37:01

I noticed that at this time, this set starts at under $1 plus S&H. It would make a wonderful gift for any lover of great music."
