Notes & Reviews:

Herbert von Karajan is one of the most important conductors of the past century. Similar to an avant-garde composer, who gave attention to the smallest touch of sound, Karajan worked on the world-famous symphonies of Beethoven, Brahms, and Bruckner as well as Richard Strauss' symphonic poems, presenting them as enticing musical narrations, glittering with brilliant colors. These recordings were made during Karajan's tour of Moscow in 1968, his third visit to the USSR during the course of five years.

Gramophone Magazine
The smoothness of the Karajan's Beethoven is less in evidence than its expressive vehemence and monolithic phrasing. The opening gesture poses problems (first-night nerves?), but the thick-textured Fifth is a powerful and unremitting as always under his direction.

Notes & Reviews:
