Notes & Reviews:
In 2008 the musical world observes the 100th birthday of one of the most widely respected performing musicians of the past century. Born in Salzburg on 5 April 1908, Herbert von Karajan influenced fellow musicians and public taste for generations through his live appearances and recordings and especially with the Berliner Philharmoniker which, as its principal conductor for over 30 years, he moulded into an ensemble of peerless power, tonal beauty and stylistic flexibility. Recorded live at the Berlin "Philharmonie" on New Year's Eve 1977, this rousing interpretation of Beethoven's most popular symphony has in the meantime acquired legendary status!Notes & Reviews:
