The legendary Japanese conductor returns in new live recordings for Beethoven 250. "Ozawa may be entering a glorious Indian summer of creativity" - Gramophone Featuring his beloved Saito Kinen Orchestra, voted by Gramophone as one of the world's 20 greatest orchestras "Animation, vibrancy and joy... he is among the most fortunate of God's creatures who are nourished and sustained by the love of what they do" John Williams "This lithe, balletic athlete with a shock of thick black hair and beads on his white turtleneck. It was Seiji Ozawa, whose energy and grace and dynamism completely entranced me" Steven Spielberg on first seeing Seiji Ozawa.

"This is Beethoven, refined, elegant, sculptural, exciting at times, but lacking depth. Ozawa creates a billowing cloud of lovely, elegant sound, assiduously sculpting the dynamic range, swirling along with beautiful containment - but it is too much so...among all this meticulous musicmaking, we sometimes lose the thrilling drive inherent in the piece."
