Notes & Reviews:

The combination of Karajan and the Vienna Philharmonic playing Mozart and Bruckner drew a "packed and raving audience" according to The Guardian of the April 6, 1962 concert at the Royal Festival Hall. The Bruckner symphony received great acclaim with critic Donald Mitchell writing, "London has not heard a Bruckner performance of this quality for years." He went on to add that the music-making was "undoubtedly touched by interpretative genius." This 2-CD set preserves the exact concert, including the British and Austrian national anthems.

The Observer, 19th May 2013
These mono tapes from the Music Preserved collection held at the University of York still fizz with the excitement of that evening 50 years on, the last movement of Mozart's "Jupiter" breathtaking in its inner discipline and Karajan's mastery of the long line so evident in the outer movements of the Bruckner.
