This recording with Sir Thomas Beecham and the magnificent Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was one of the most successful early stereo productions. While Beecham conducted all nine of the Beethoven symphonies, he did not record them all. However, the Second is the one with which he was most closely associated. He recorded it on three different occasions, each regarded as the outstanding version of its time.
