Boston Concert Reviews Recommends Pittsburgh Symphony's Beethoven Symphony Nos. 5 & 7

“These performances are ravishing in their expansive sound and buoyancy. Each movement brings new gifts to explore: the expressive weight of the strings (all vibrant tones and capacious plucks); the ringing out of brass choruses thunderous and deep in the stage or the highest piccolo leaps tremulous and fragile.
