BUZZ: Colin Anderson writes in his note: "An aura of greatness informs Klemperer's conducting of Beethoven ... Klemperer's strong sense of structure ensures an unbroken line and a true sense of arrival. Also, Klemperer's distrust of sound for its own sake (the antithesis to Karajan) gives his performances an unvarnished quality, an inner truthfulness. Beethoven's music is presented as rough-hewn yet not without its own beauty, lyricism and consolation alongside its heroic and humanistic characteristics - all this can be heard in these recorded-live performances from Vienna."
