Notes & Reviews:

This CD, combining the famed 1954 LP of Opera Intermezzi with overtures taken from other sources, reveals Herbert von Karajan and the Philharmonia's delicate singing tone, color and flexible rhythms. The late Maestro is best known today for his performances of the core German repertoire, but this disc will offer fond memories of his lighter touch.
