One person found this helpful. Top critical review. Zdenek Kosler was a respected conductor best known for his work in Czech music. This performance is swift and cheery, and shows good knowledge of the piece one of the Great symphoniesbut Kosler is let down by rough playing from the orchestra.
They are enthusiastic but rough and not altogether unified. In all, this won't be your first choice for this symphony, but the raw energy and enthusiasm, plus bargain price, make this a fun casual listen. Sort by.

A moveable feast indeed. Format: Audio CD. This is a five star performance per se, but receives 4. I did not find the sound as flawed as another reviewer here, but auditioning would 2nd Mov.: Molto Vivace - Beethoven* a prospective reviewers.
The interpretations do not differ greatly. The yellow covered Eroica contains the first movement repeat, a plus I think. Sonically it is marginally better than the earlier version, which had been cleansed of the tape splices and ugly clarinet on the lp. I do find the earlier version more intense and gripping than the remake, especially in its Funeral March, but do not wish to overstate the difference.
If you're looking for some top-flight period playing, and Beethoven interpreted with enormous fire and attention to detail, look no further.
Sure, there many recordings of the Eroica to pick from. Many good ones too. This is one of the good ones. Schroder is a brilliant, seasoned, cultured musician who 2nd Mov.: Molto Vivace - Beethoven* inspired the Smithsonian band to play the stuffing out of this piece.
I daresay that if you give it a listen, and listen to it a few times, it might well become a favorite. This recording, which is little known, gives many more famous conductors and ensembles some real competition.
My only wish is that Schroder and the band had recorded more Beethoven symphonies back then, because they would very likely have eclipsed Norrington entirely, the recordings being roughly contemporaneous. As it is, we have two Beethoven symphonies from Schroder and the band. Worth looking for that in the used bins.
Both performances are superb in every way. No other Eroica recording evokes these feelings. Yes, the orchestral balance in this performance sounds unusual. Listen to the last five minutes or so, and you may note the spirituality, or gentle noblility, or maybe a sense of longing. No other Eroica recording evokes these feelings of the nearly 30 Eroica recordings in my More Love - James Carr - A Man Needs A Woman. The recording is mono.
Also there is a dreadful tape edit at the start of the first movement's development section. But the disc is worth having because Kleiber takes the first movement repeat and plays that A Rock Hard Roll - Al Mack - Acid Tech High coda the way Beethoven wrote it, and it is thrilling to hear.
The finale is magnificent. Though I would not want this as my sole recording of the Eroica, it is a performance to come back to and savour again from time to time.
