‘...a performance of genius that now speaks to us freely and openly for the first time... It is wonderful to have these two legendary performances so expertly restored and placed together' Gramophone

‘Kleiber's superlatively played readings are unbeatable.' Daily Telegraph

‘...the pairing of Kleiber's interpretations of these two masterpieces on one recording has become an essential recommendation for any collection. These are performances which seem to present a Beethoven "for the ages", a distillation of a long interpretative tradition . . . The sense of something monumental is enhanced by the imposing Vienna Musikverein acoustic. But that doesn't blur Kleiber's superfine attention to detail, with perfectly balanced textures and subtly graded transitions . . . And the 1970s Vienna Philharmonic was a band of an equally detailed response . . . The Fifth Symphony moves in an unerring line from its famous opening, crackling with excitement, to its celebratory ending. And the Seventh, with all its repeated rhythmic units, generates so much momentum that the thrilling acceleration Kleiber whips up in the final bars almost seems the only possible outcome.' BBC Music Magazine

‘... There had long been powerful and vivid performances of this iconic work, yet Kleiber's intense dynamism possesses a flexibility that made performances predicated merely on volume, monumentality, and drive seem blunt and unimaginative...' 1001 Classical Recordings
