"It seems unusual for a conductor of almost sixty, who had directed the symphony dozens of times before, to so drastically revise his view of a classic work like the "Eroica" in so short a space of time, yet the evidence from two very different performances, recorded within four years of each other, is there for all to hear. This was not a momentary inspiration as sometimes happened with Furtwängler but a deeply considered, fresh look at one of his favorite pieces of music." - Misha Horenstein
"A beautifully classical interpretation, spacious and deeply felt, but strictly life-size" - The Gramophone
Jascha Horenstein's dramatic reconception of Beethoven's Eroica, captured in stereo in 1957 finds a great conductor constantly challenging his vision and interpretation of great music. This newly XR-remastered release allows you to experience his fabulous Beethoven as never before.
