BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 5 in C Minor; Leonore Overture No. 3 in C
Major – Philharmonic Promenade Orchestra of London/Sir Adrian Boult –
Vanguard/ Silverline Classics DualDisc with DVD-Audio – 284219-2, 45:00:

A straightforward interpretation of the Beethoven warhorse, again
recorded in four-channel in the early 1970s by Vanguard and here
remixed to 5.1 surround on the DVD-A side of the disc. There is also a
stereo hi-res mix on this side, along with that “Restoring a Legacy”
short video found on all these Silverline Classics DualDiscs and
DVD-As. There is a gallery of still photos and memorabilia on Boult and
a bio on Beethoven… if you don’t happen to know who he is. Again,
don’t expect to see a video of Sir Adrian Boult conducting even a
minute of this symphony.
