The articulation is sometimes superficial, the transparency moderate, the coordination not always as good as one would hope. This way, the piece — a fairly long movement anyway, at least for the time when it was composed — is too uniform, the music lacks life, vitality. Occasional intonation impurities timpani close to the end!
The Allegro molto part often sounds harmless, sometimes also like late Mozart even that was less harmless, though! I also find the interpretation superficial in details, lacking agogics and differentiation. This symphony was recorded in For me, this is the best interpretation of this movement in the comparison. Very little slowdown in the Trio. What I really like about this interpretation above most others is that the entire Allegro molto part i. With all the evolution, the knowledge that was acquired in the years since this recording, it is fairly hard to enjoy this recording or the one from This is a live recording, which may explain some of the occasional coordination issues.
The basic tempo is rather heavy, certainly not Allegro , let alone con brio. And the end is even slower…. Also, in the development period, around bar ff. The proper historic orchestral arrangement opposing violins for sure helps the transparency and the acoustic balance. Maybe a tad slow, overall. From a recording point-of-view, the woodwind instruments particularly clarinets and oboes sound pretty awful, which for sure is not the fault of the artists.
But the interpretation as such is fairly convincing. The sound of the recording is somewhat brassy, limited, especially with the wind instruments but this was 65 years ago, after all. True, the opposing violin voices are more demanding for the coordination — but for a studio recording…. He exerts firm tempo control — and the tempo is on the heavy side, definitely not an Allegro molto.

Allegro ma non troppo, un poco maestoso Molto vivace Adagio molto e cantabile Klemperer's classic Beethoven Symphony Cycle: The final set, Nos "The performance is as great as anything one is likely to hear in this world" - The Gramophone As with the previous releases in this series, I came to the original EMI recordings full of admiration.
Consistently well-made and of this highest technical quality for their era, one wonders what benefits might arise from applying XR remastering to them? And then I hear the results - and suddenly those s recordings don't sound so good after all in comparison!
This is therefore a project dedicated to extracting the finest sound possible from a very accomplished working base. It is something I believe is as valid for well-known, well-made recordings of the past as it is for the rarer and more troublesome recordings I also work with.
This presents Klemperer at his very best; he can now be heard in unprecedented sound quality, significantly improving on all previous issues. Symphony 7 - 1st mvt. Symphony 7 - 2nd mvt.
