This is easily the finest Ninth we have yet had in stereo . . . my goodness how a modern recording adds to the impact . . . The Scherzo is [intense] . . . purity and simplicity are the keynotes . . . [3rd movement]: [an] almost religious calm. The recording was made in a church, and here one feels it clearly. The triplet variation in particular is radiant in a way that is rarely achieved in studio recordings. The finale is blessed with very good soloists . . . [Walter Berry]: How much better to have a clearly defined voice than a heavier one which is badly focussed . . . Gundula Janowitz is a beautiful young newcomer. . . It is a rich and creamy voice . . .

Cette édition, bien luxueuse . . . essentiel à l'Histoire de l'interprétation.
