These are the best World War II performances of Beethoven’s symphonies under the baton of Furtwängler.  Previously released versions on our label were acclaimed in Fanfare, American Record Guide, Pulse!, Absolute Sound, Diapason, Musica, and numerous other journals. They have been completely re-mastered by Internationally acclaimed engineer Maggi Payne for this edition and sound better than any prior issue.
 

 "One thing becomes ever clearer, and that is that a complete understanding of the genius of Beethoven is impossible without some acquaintance with Furtwängler’s incandescent readings, before, during or after World War II; Music & Arts’ digital remastering is impeccable."

 
Octavio Roca - San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
 
 

 "Wartime Beethoven concerts of intense power and thought [Furtwängler’s] music-making reflects the anguish of his heart, the sincerity of a tormented soul who glorified Beethoven as the collective conscience of his race."

 
Gary Lemco - Audiophile Audition
