Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This Everybody's Beethoven set has Christopher Dohnanyi conducting the Cleveland Symphony. You get the Fourth, Eighth, and Ninth Beethoven symphonies performed by one of America's top 10 orchestras with that magnificent Telarc sound. The recordings on this set are taken from Beethoven: The Nine Symphonies (Complete). Seventy plus bucks for the entire set. The performance takes a more period flavor, but the sonics can't be beat.

Everyone has their opinion of which conductor and ensemble did the best cycle of Beethoven symphonies. There are the standards, like the vintage edition with Bruno Walter with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra Beethoven: The Complete Symphonies Beethoven: The Complete Symphonies or the 1970's recordings of Georg Solti conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Beethoven: The Nine Symphonies (Complete). Some listener's would tell you Herbert von Karajan's cycle with the Berlin Philharmonic Beethoven: 9 Symphonies / Karajan (1963)is the gold standard. They are all great choices, and each has their strong points. Solti's Ninth Symphony, 1970's version, is one of the best pieces or recorded classical music, period.

You won't find these performances mentioned in the Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music. In fact, you won't find mentions of hardly anything in the Telarc catalog. Pity. Because Telarc consistently has turned out some of the finest digital recordings available on the market. Whether these Beethoven recordings are your only set, or additions to your existing Beethoven collection, solid interpretations and solid performances.
