Leinsdorf, Boston Symphony 
"Beethoven: "Eroica" Symphony no. 3" (Vinyl)

This is an old-school shaded dog, mono pressing RCA dynagroove.

Of Beethoven's symphonies, his third ("heroic," not "erotic") symphony surely clambers for the title of most-recorded work along side his ever-popular fifth and monumental ninth.

The third was the first Beethoven symphony I ever played and I still feel like such a child at understanding it's significance.  I love it because Beethoven symphonies may be my favorite symphonic literature of all time, but I know that I'll be learning to appreciate over a lifetime the genius, beauty and ingenuity of Beethoven's "Eroica" symphony.
