Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this beatiful vinyl
If you haven’t heard this ninth or its live counterpart, you haven’t heard Beethoven’s ninth at its very best. The difference consists partly in the fact that Klemperer lets the trombones and percussion play as they should, according to the score – i.e. clearly audible. Most other conductors tend to ignore this. On the present recording, the result is just amazing. The recording quality is very fine, despite its age. It is far better than many other, later recordings (e.g., Karajan’s). Compared with the live version from Testament.
