An iconic release from Music & Arts features a digitally re-mastered recording of Wilhem Furtwangler's 1942 live performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony which will be the first correctly pitched one made commercially available.
This wonderful performance can simply be summed up by extracts from two reviews:-
"this wartime live Berlin performance is special, crackling with tension of the times and the conductor's defiant rages." - Absolute Sound
"..this is the Ninth to end Ninths - you'll never get over this ferocity" - Pulse!
