Notes & Reviews:

The first-every Blu-Ray disc featuring Herbert von Karajan! Combining the forces of two of the 20th century's greatest musicians - Yehudi Menuhin and Herbert von Karajan in their only recorded performance together - this magnificent program marks a high point in filmed classical music. As a bonus, previously unreleased rehearsal sessions prior to both performances are included! (Picture Format: NTSC 4:3 B&W; Filmed in 35 MM, mastered from an HD Source; Sound Formats: PCM Stereo; PCM Mono-in the bonus; 107 minutes)

Fanfare
Visual quality is excellent, and the sound is good for the vintage. The extras include, among other things, an embarrassingly awkward conversation between Karajan and Menuhin. Not, perhaps, the year's most vital release - but one that's strongly recommended both for admirers of these artists and for those who have forgotten (or never knew) just how good they could be in their prime.
