Many thanks to a music lover from China for this classic
A great performance. I’ve gone through a number of recordings of Beethoven’s 3rd – on vinyl and CD. This is one of the best; although recorded in 1962, the sound is clear. Bohm’s tempos are right on; the orchestra is tight; the soloists sound pumped and the choir soars. The finale makes you jump! They really nailed it! You never feel like you’re a passenger on a top-heavy ship in roiling seas – which is the feeling I’ve experienced listening to some other emotionally unbridled performances.
