  1. I am sorry, but my comment to previous post (Furtwaengler – Archipel) was an error. I didn’t know that there is another recording of the Beethoven’s Ninth with Furtwaengler and Berlin PhO from 1942.

    My comment: “This is the most powerful recording of the Beethoven’s Ninth that I have ever heard” – refers to THIS recording, released by Melodiya.

    It would be very interesting to compare these two recordings that were so close in time…

    Thank you very much! Sorry for incorrect comment to previous post.

  2. This is the one that critics rave about – “is almost too draining an experience” (John Ardoin – The Furtwängler Record).
    Endless thanks!
