    I had a copy of this recording on vinyl in the early 70's when I was in college. It is the best recording of the 9th I've ever heard. I have looked for it for years on CD, as my album had way too many miles on it. I was never able to find a copy, and the original RCA recording was out of print. I stumbled onto this listing in iTunes and bought it immediately. I can't tell you how happy I am to have this recording again. I've heard a lot of orchestras and choirs perform this work, but IMO, this one is the superlative.
  • This is the Best Recording I

    Eugene Ormandy and the Philidelphia Philharmonic give us another stunning performance, played just at the right tempo, with great sound and audio. This is the way Beethoven's 9th is supposed to sound. Grand!!

    Ormandy's interpretation surpasses all others. it is why you do not see other versions available. it is moving, powerful, and well balanced. i have listend to this version since 1973 and i never tire of it. all others pale. the pure joy and ecstasy come from beethoven, but the conductor, the interpreter, is required to translate it and keep the true beauty alive.
  • Best Beethoven's 9th version!

    Although an older performance, this is my favorite version of the 9th Symphony. Ormandy imbues the music with a persistent life and force that I find missing from Bernstein's and Vanska's interpretations. There is no stiltedness or unexpected drops in energy here that I've found in other recordings. The Choir's voices are not as distinct as I some might like, but the fourth movement is still rousing.

Music is the art of arranging sounds in time to produce a composition through the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre. It is one of the universal cultural aspects of all human societies. General definitions of music include common elements such as pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements. Music is performed with a vast range of instruments and vocal techniques ranging from singing to rapping; there are solely instrumental pieces, solely vocal pieces (such as songs without instrumental accompaniment) and pieces that combine singing and instruments. The word derives from Greek μουσική (mousike; "(art) of the Muses"); see § Etymology and glossary of musical terminology.

Music can be divided into genres (e.g., country music) and genres can be further divided into subgenres (e.g., country blues and pop country are two of the many country subgenres), although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to personal interpretation, and occasionally controversial. For example, it can be hard to draw the line between some early 1980s hard rock and heavy metal. Within the arts, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art or as an auditory art. Music may be played or sung and heard live at a rock concert or orchestra performance, heard live as part of a dramatic work (a music theater show or opera), or it may be recorded and listened to on a radio, MP3 player, CD player, smartphone or as film score or TV show.
