Georg Solti conducts the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Vienna Philharmonic in performances of Symphonies by Beethoven and Schubert
These recordings from the end of the 1950s are characteristic of Solti’s tense hard-driven style, in the case of Schubert’s Fifth ridiculously so. Beethoven’s Eroica and No. 7 fare better, but No. 5 is aggressive to a fault.
