Notes & Reviews:
A wonderful reading it is, as authoritative as its predecessors and every bit as well played but somehow more profound, more humane, more lovable if that is a permissible attribute o an interpretation of this Everest among symphonies. It is the sense of the music being in the hears and mines and collective unconscious o Karajan and every on the of the hundred and more players that give this performance its particular charisma and appeal.
Recording information: Vienna, musikverein, Grosser Saal (11/1988).
