Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 5 & 7, etc. based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Many critics consider this the greatest recording of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. They are correct. Many others have made excellent recordings of this symphony, but they all fall short of the performance by Reiner and the Chicago Symphony. The orchestra is incredibly precise and alert, nobody misses a beat. The recording of the Seventh Symphony is no different. In typical character, Reiner makes certain his performers give him their full attention. Coriolan and Fidelio Overtures are an added bonus. All the recordings are perfect. This is a must for anybody who likes Beethoven.
