Well, I just came in from a hard morning extending the perimeter defences to see some exciting new discs have emerged!

Please do post details (including serial numbers and if you own them comments on sound quality - and links, please, not just pictures) for any Beethoven reissues that appear to be missing from my mega-post on page 16 above.  I shall update it shortly with all these lovely new releases.  Audite DMM vinyl Lucerne 1954!  Wowsers! (as we say in the vicarage)  Sounds good enough to put in a sandwich and eat for tea.

Yesterday I referred to a Wall Street Journal article, which begins with a rave about Furtwängler's 1948 performance with the Berlin Philharmonic of the Brahms Fourth Symphony

Here is (I believe) the YouTube page to which the article referred:

Here is another version from 1949: it is just as compelling, if not more so!
