Philharmonia Orchestra


Vladimir Ashkenazy


Vladimir Ashkenazy recorded three of the Beethoven symphonies for Decca and this coupling of two of the most popular dates from the early 1980s. They are grand and expressive readings, at once thrilling and visionary.

'the slow movement [] has that feeling of spontaneous live performance which has marked most of Ashkenazy's conducting on record The recording [] is wide-ranging in the spread of stereo and warmly atmospheric' - Gramophone (Symphony No.5)

'a warmly spontaneous, generally direct reading taken at sensible unexaggerated speeds [] there are few modern Beethoven recordings so satisfying or more alive than this with sound recorded in Kingsway Hall which sets new standards against any rival version, full and spacious yet warmly co-ordinated' - Gramophone, November 1984 (Symphony No.7)
