5.0 out of 5 stars Intense experience 11 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Karajan's great recordings. It's not perfect as the choir is somewhat recessed and the some tempi are a little slow. But he makes this performance of Beethoven's great mass appear an intense spiritual experience, which is obviously what Beethoven was after. Ther soloists are probably the greatest team ever assembled for this (or any other?) choral work, with Janowitz absolutely stunning. Worth getting just to hear her; but the other three, including Wunderlich on one of his last recordings, are simply superb. For this work soloists must be out of the top drawer and these four certainly are. There are other, valid, ways of performing this work (eg Gardiner) but of its type this is unbeatable.

This really is the definitive recording of Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis". Not only is Karajan's conducting a reminder of why he's constantly voted top conductor of all time in various polls, but the singing - especially from Janowitz and Wunderlich - is so vital and so moving that you never want to hear another version. It was a great idea to couple the Beethoven with Mozart'a "Coronation" Mass, which has a wonderfully balanced solo quartet and also shows the Vienna Singverein to be a choir that can sing with great gusto. I urge you all to buy this set!

5.0 out of 5 stars In one word SUPERB! 5 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
I can't add much to the above two reviews,except to agree wholeheartedly with them!
When Karajan got it right,there is just nobody who can do it better.
Of course he also was able to get the BEST soloists,as here.
What is especially poignant is that the Missa Solemnis was recorded in Feb 1966,and Wunderlich died in Sept 1966.heartbreaking to lose such a voice when it was just coming into full flower.
Both works will, I feel,never be better conducted,played and sung.

A real bargain too.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Elect of Karajan Recordings. Inspired 19 Oct 2008
By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Totally support the other reviewer's comments. A gobsmackingly wonderful performance, with the Berliners pouring out pure gold and the greatest vocal quartet imaginable. Can't think of anyone capable of offering as spiritual an interpretation as this one from HvK.

Think fast. Act fast. Buy it.
