Product Description

Beethoven's nine epoch-making symphonies represent a touchstone for any conductor, and these recordings constitute a highlight of Riccardo Muti's twelve-year tenure as Music Director of the illustrious Philadelphia Orchestra. As Gramophone wrote: "The Philadelphia Orchestra ... respond superbly to the demands Muti makes on them ... The fine shaping of the parts and the whole, the superb playing and a clear sense of discovery communicate themselves thrillingly to the listener."
