Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 7 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I had initially set out to find a recording of Beethoven's seventh symphony when I had stumbled onto this. Seeing Bernstein's name was what compelled me to buy this particular recording. After listening, I was convinced that I had never heard Beethoven the right way before. Bernstein's vigor and enthusiasm for Beethoven's music overwhelm the pieces, particularly in the second movement of the second symphony, that one cannot help but connect to the music in the most personal way possible. Bernstein was a genuine music lover and any lover of music will understand his interpretations and feelings toward these pieces. This is a must have for any collector or Beethoven fan. No matter what, this is a great addition to any musical library.
