Review by analogue March 22, 2011 (4 of 7 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:  
I cannot and will not state that these are the greatest Beethoven performces ever done. I love the Pastoral and have heard too many versions to state equivically that this version is the best. Each conductor brings differences to be sure...some good and others not so good. The performances here are excellent and somewhat fresh to the ears.

However I will state just one other thing.

The sound is very gorgeous and extremely realistic and warm. As I mentioned in another review Channel has bought some new hardware and this makes their recordings extremely natural, relaxed and holistic.

Channel Classics have really improved their recordings. And Kudo's to them for this.
Highly recommended.
