Japanese critics voted for best versions EVER of the Beethoven Symphonies, Paavo/DKAM has 4 of the nine, also Overtures, and 2nd position in 5th and 9th symphonies
DKPB Beethoven have occupied a good positioning in the poll by Japanese critics/journalists to choose “the best recorded version of” particular work. They chose Paavo/DKAM versions as the best of Beethoven 1, 2, 3, 8 and Overtures. Even on other symphonies, in No. 9, they chose Paavo the second to Furtwangler/Bayreuth recording.
