Discussion: Beethoven: The 9 Symphonies - Asahina

Mr Panessa,
Thanks for the review. I'm interested in Asahina's Beethoven, but will only buy one set, for obvious ($) reasons.
Which set do you prefer? I assume all the sets sound terrific, so I'd like the one with more tension and drama, which I know takes back seat to luxurious beauty in Asahina's work, so I'll take the one with as much drama as possible.

Both sets are very well played. It's the other set, from Exton, however, that is the most superlative. Neither set is multi-channel, but the ten years between the two sets gives the advantage in recording technology to the Exton.

Thank you so much. My system is good but not great, so I might not hear the difference in recording technology. If I don't hear/read back from you in a few days, I'll assume that performance-wise the Exton is also as good or better.
All the best,
