Beethoven - Symphony No. 5 in C minor// English Symphony Orchestra - Kenneth Woods

"Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony also received one of the best performances I have heard live. Woods’s fine and sane musicality ensured a genuine performance, full of real intensity and sensitivity within a constant view of powerful onward-momentum throughout, a conception that made this imperishable masterpiece fully hang together...Woods’s Presto tempo in the ultimate coda was breathtaking, urging his players on – to the highest degree of musicianship and uplifting expression." Robert Matthew-Walker - Classical Source "It takes a master conductor to find new things to say in the most over-exposed music, but this account of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony was full of insight and energy—and with all the repeats....concluding with a Presto of complete conviction and assurance of execution. This was, indeed, special." Guy Rickards - Musical Opinion "Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony received a reading as attentive to the smaller detail as to its overall trajectory....The ESO responded with playing of sustained emotional power" Richard Whitehouse - Arcana FM Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-01827) Symphony No. 5 in C minor, opus 67 Urtext edition by Clive Brown, published by Breitkopf & Härtel I.
