Right from the opening, you know this one is going to be special. Solti definitely has listened to a lot of Furtwangler in preparation to confront Beethoven and his 9th Symphony. The tempos are broad in the opening movement and especially spacious in the adagio. Solti is not a questing, spiritual conductor like Wilhelm Furtwangler was and that’s most readily felt in the adagio where Solti’s communicate powers are not in the same league as that of the great german maestro.
