Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2


"I came to enjoy classical music rather late in my life, and at the moment listening to the varied musical repertoire of Beethoven. I do recognise some of his compositions from having heard a movement which is played more frequently than the rest of the work. I’m now trying to see if I could sit through a whole symphony or two and with this CD issued by Nimbus Alliance with the London Symphony Orchestra with conductor Yondani Butt. I have to say that I’m enjoying it very much indeed. If I had to choose between them, my preference would be with Symphony No 2, but that’s not to say I didn’t like No. 1. I would recommend this anyone who likes good music."-Alan M. Kneller
