Notes & Reviews:

"Hailed as "gramophone classics" when they first appeared in 1964, these accounts of 'La Mer' and 'Daphnis 2' still sound mighty impressive... the virtuosity of the Berlin Philharmonic is really stunning... you can't help but be blown away by the sheer technical brilliance of what (Karajan) achieves here (in Daphnis 2)... Karajan really pulls off a virtuoso feat (in Bolero); he manages to convey the illusion of conducting at a rock-steady tempo yet through the subtlest inside-the-bar-lines fluctuations he cranks up the tension by tiny increments... so that when the final bars explode into resolution the effect is truly both startling and cathartic." -American Record Guide
