5.0 out of 5 stars Complete your collection of Beethoven's Ninths! June 16, 2008
Like many classical music enthusiasts, I have accumulated multiple copies of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor "Choral", op. 125. For the uninitiated, it's a work that one just cannot get enough of -- it was also Beethoven's Magnum opus.

This is a lengthy symphony in four movements, the fourth featuring a large choral element. Most folks have heard segments of this great work, particularly the opening of the second movement, (as we have the opening of Beethoven's Fifth, probably the most popular symphony ever written), often played as background music to films or even evening news programs. In this rendition, the work lasts 70:17. This brings me to a chief point in regard to this particular recording.

I did not harbor any high expectations when I purchased this CD at a variety discount store for one dollar. I had never before heard of Conductor Evgeny Vovkushansky nor had I ever previously listened to any renderings of the St. Petersburg Festival Orchestra. I was in for a pleasant surprise!

The chief feature of Vovkushansky's paradigm of the 9th is the meter he has chosen to initiate -- his conveyance of this master work is just slightly slower than what you'll hear elsewhere and, while I had to let this idea grow on me a bit, I really enjoy hearing it now.

As for the vocals we get to hear the St. Petersburg Festival Studio Choir under the direction of Artistic Director, Georgy Mundin; Soprano, Naira Nachatova; Alto, Natalia Volkova; Tenor, Timur Tsariov, and; Bass, Gennady Assov. All of these folks have presented a sterling performance in this instance.

The CD was issued by Madacy Entertainment Group (Canada) in 1998 and their technicians did a terrific job on capturing both the sound and the ambiance of the symphony on this DDD recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Gem April 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
If you are a Beethoven collector, you always have room for another performance of the 9th. Don't miss this performance!! It is avery dramatic Russian performance. The sound may not be absolute audiophile quality, but, the performance makes up for it. All in all a good addition to your Beethoven collection.
