“dark and intense Eroica, with urgent allegros ... the LSO responds with bite and refinement. Excellent bargain” - Penguin 3 stars

“Fiery, noble, and imposing was how I described Wyn Morris’ earlier recording ... and this remake has those qualities and even finer playing and modern recording. [I had dubbed Morris our Celtic Furtwängler, a phrase that later appeared in adverts!] ... but the fact remains, Morris knows his Beethoven and conducts it (like Burton speaking Shakespeare) with an ardour and love of tonal splendour that is close to that old revered school of German interpretation: closer than anything we are likely to get nowadays” - Gramophone

Recorded 1988/9
