Berliner Philharmoniker / Lorin Maazel
Beethoven: Symphony No.5 Op.67 & No.6 Op.68 "Pastoral" (CD)
Lorin Maazel's early DG and Decca recordings were landmarks and this disc offers what is unquestionably two of the finest performances of these two symphonies. The Fifth has really thunderbolt impact and the Berlin strings and winds in the 'Pastoral' sing gloriously.
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
