I have heard these two works (and also by the same performers the 7th and 8th Symphonies) many times both live in different halls with different orchestras as well as many recordings However, I have to confess I was never satisfied by those performances either at the artistic level (both live and recorded) or at the aural level when recorded. Artistically they were never right, mostly because of extraneous changes to the original instrumentation and orchestration and when recorded, because of the invariably banal sound. Happily, I can say here and now that this SACD in either its Pure Tube Stereo or Real Surround Sound version as created by Tacet, has finally moved me to think of it as my long-sought "reference" CD both artistically and aurally.

Audiophile Audition (10/01/2007):

This SACD has finally moved me to think of it as my long-sought reference disc of Nos. 1 & 2
Beethoven′s First and Second Symphonies, together with their roughly contemporaries in time, the First and Second Piano Concertos, marked the arrival of a new voice to the concert halls of Vienna and by extension the world at large. more...

Le monde de la musique (09/01/2007):

L’éditeur se vante de proposer la première intégrale (en cours) des symphonies de Beethoven en «Surround 5.1» Bornons-nous a constater déjà la qualité de la prise de son en simple stéréophonie, son qui est a la fois riche, naturel et détaille. more...
