Does anyone know anything about the Joseph Krips Beethoven Symphony set?. I first encountered these recordings in the 60's on a budget label with pressings so poor that you wondered if the company was using shredded wheat. A few years ago I bought them on CD for $7.00. Very cheap.
This seems odd because Krips was a well known European conductor and the orchestra was the London Symphony. The performances are generally good (especially the 5tth) and the recordings are good for their time. Why is it alsways sold as a cheapie for somone who "just wants a set of the Beethoven Symphinies?"
Notes to You!
