Strauss: Also sprach Zarathustra; Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante, K. 297b / Karajan, Berlin PO, Salzburg

Notes & Reviews:

This live recording from the 1970 Salzburg Festival is a memorable collaboration between maestro Herbert von Karajan and his famous principal wind players - oboist Lothar Koch, clarinetist Karl Leister, bassoonist Günter Piesk and horn player Gerd Seifert. Although Karajan recorded the Mozart Sinfonia Concertante with the Berlin Philharmonic in the studio for EMI, the work was then performed by a different (and less stellar) group of soloists. The fine Also sprach Zarathustra also included on this recording benefits from a wonderful contribution from the orchestra's legendary leader Michel Schwalbé.
