C0023. SIR THOMAS BEECHAM Cond. Royal Phil.: Symphony #2 in D (Beethoven), recorded 1956; Symphony #2 in D (Brahms), Live Performance, 20 Aug., 1956. (England) BBC Legends 4099. Final Sealed Copy! - 684911409925
"The key performance here is the live Edinburgh Festival performance of Brahms' Symphony #2 from August 20th, 1956, where the audience literally goes wild before the final coda. This is the Beecham electricity at its most potent and exciting. As usual with Beecham, he always responds to the live occasion more than in the studio."
