34 Songs, 5 Hours 39 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This remastered collection is faithful to the original 1960 performances, which were recorded on 35mm film in order to accurately capture the orchestra. The music here is big, bright, and beautiful, with full instrumentation and precise direction. It’s a perfect introduction to Beethoven’s symphony cycle, from the passionate highs and sweeping lows of "Eroica" to Symphony No. 9, fragments of which haunt the creations of so many subsequent composers as well as the scores of countless film and television works.
