Beethoven -- the great, enlightened, ennobling and inspiring Beethoven of our father and their father's before them back to the dawn of recordings -- was dead by the digital age and it was the original instrument movement that killed him with their too-lean lines, their too-rushed tempos and their too-strained ensemble. These live performances of Beethoven's Fourth and Fifth Symphonies with Otto Klemperer leading the Berlin Philharmonic in May 1966 come from a time when the great Beethoven was alive and well and living in the concert halls and recording studios around the world. Otto Klemperer -- once a radical but the grand old man of German conductors by 1966 -- was a deep believer in the greatness of Beethoven's symphonies and his performances here are immensely strong, tremendously heroic, warmly tender and absolutely right. With scrupulous balances, careful dynamic gradations, complete control of rhythm and tempo, and total command of mass and motion, Klemperer preached his faith from the podium, and the Berlin Philharmonic, then the sumptuous instrument of Herbert von Karajan, responded with all their beauty of tone and virtuosity of technique and the Berlin audience, clearly awed, responded with rapturous and prolonged applause, dutifully preserved on this disc. Although these performances have long circulated in the Klemperer underground of pirated recordings, this legitimate Testament re-issue has the clearest and the most realistic sound by far.
