“Fine as the Mozart performance is, the Beethoven is even more memorable because of the unforgettably beautiful playing of James Levine, especially in the slow movement, which is presented with Elysian delicacy. In all other respects this is a treasurable performance, splendidly played and recorded, and most realistically videoed.”
