Notes & Reviews:

The acclaimed German conductor Klaus Tennstedt is featured in this fascinating series of live recordings from the Philharmonie in Berlin. All are from the 1980s and previously unreleased, and each features a concerto played by a notable soloist of the period. The performances find the Berlin Philharmonic in excellent form, playing concert programs that demonstrate the consistent level of musicianship for which this orchestra is justifiably famous.

"This is from a 1980 concert in Berlin's Philharmonie. The Berlin Philharmonic was Karajan's orchestra at the time, and its dark richness and discipline come through well...This Tennstedt Eighth is a complex, thought out, and exciting performance that should appeal to most everyone...The engineering is good, especially for a concert recording probably intended for broadcast."-American Record Guide
