Notes & Reviews:

"As a performance the 1983 Karajan Also sprach Zarathustra (coupled with an exciting account of Don Juan) will be hard to beat and could very well be first choice...the massed violins produce wonderfully radiant tetures...The soaring main theme of Don Juan is hardly less sumptuous and the playing is electrifying in its energy." -Penguin Guide

"I found [Tod und Verklarung] quite electrifying with superb playing from all departments and a life-and-death intensity to the climaxes. It is more vividly recorded than last time round and, as I have indicated, the performance is tauter (25'23" against 27'00" in 1974) and more powerful... [I]t would be difficult to improve on these performances by the greatest Richard Strauss conductor of the day and the glorious BPO, and the quality of the recording gives no cause for reproach." -Gramophone
