Beethoven Odyssey (Limited Boxset)
Not yet reviewed.
A master Beethoven conductor in his prime –a 12-CD set presenting the ‘London' Beethoven recordings of Sir Colin Davis, including the Symphonies, a selection of Overtures, the five Piano Concertos (Stephen Kovacevich), Violin Concerto (Arthur Grumiaux) and the two Masses. These broadly-sung and spacious performances, unexaggerated yet alive, are collected together for the first time.
“This is an impressive account of the Eroica, notable for many good things. First Davis's acute perception of every detail of the score ... Another outstanding quality is Davis's insistence on the right balance everywhere." Gramophone, September 1971
“Precise, keenly analytical, judiciously weighted and balanced, honestly phrased." Stereo Review, May 1972 (Piano Concertos Nos. 1-5)
“Clarity is the key to Davis's modus operandi and it pays great dividends in a work like the Eroica where contrapuntal detailplays such an important role. I also applaud the complete lack of affectation in the performance." Stereo Review, May 1972
