Herbert von Karajan's Beethoven Ninth from the complete cycle made in the late 1970s has been a high recommendation for this bulwark ever since it first aappeared. Finally, DG has done a thorough remastering, and the results are incredible. The Galleria issue (415832) was a keeper as it was; I've used it as a hi fi demo for years. I never dreamed it could be improved upon. But it has been. It appears this has not just been remastered, but entirely remixed. The balances between the instruments is much more realistic now. The Galleria issue seems almost sterile by comparison. Just listen to the first few minutes of the finale. The sound of bass violin strings being plucked almost drowns out other sounds in teh Galleria, but there is a great subtlety to it in teh new issue. This is worth the price just for the ninth alone. No hesitations. Even if you own other ninths, or prior issues of this recording, get this one.

Format: Audio CD
Uncle Herbert looks proud of himself as he stands in front of his Lear Jet or Me-262 - oh, for a Bonfire of the Vanities - but in this instance it's warranted.

Two of these performances require little comment. The 1977 Fifth is one of the few performances that could confidently jump into the ring with the Kleiber and emerge with a points-decision. This side of Furtwanger '42, the Choral Symphony from the same cycle is the Big Kahuna of Beethoven Ninths. That leaves the 1977 Pastoral.

Karajan, much like Furtwangler, has been criticised for his Beethoven Sixth. Few will quarrel with his interpretations of the final four movements, particularly when he observes the repeat in the Scherzo (which he does here). It is his tempo in the first movement that attracts the stones: it's "too tense" or "too glib" or "too heartless" or its beauties speed past as if in the slipstream of a bullet-train. Karajan was well known for setting an interpretation in concrete so this criticism is applicable to all of his performances of the Pastoral; it rings true of the performance from '63 which is the Achilles heel of the set, and it is very hard to disagree with SFL's review of the live performance in London in May 1972 - it's even faster than this re-take Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 / Strauss: Ein Heldenleben.

The first movement of the `77 Pastoral is quick on its heels but it has an inner poise that is lacking in its siblings.

Format: Audio CD
Karajan's very best recordings of 5th, 6th and the magnificent 9th, are vividly restored with more perspective and excellent balance! I've always loved these 70s' stereo version of 5th and the glowing performance of 6th, but this sublime account of 9th is still very special - particularly the palpable sense of occasion and commitment from both chorus and singers, which uplifts the transcendental vision of the finale. A must-buy for any HvK fans!

I bought this because of what had been written in other reviews. Great symphonies played in masterful fashion. Excellent sound quality. All true - absolutely superb!

Herbert von Karajan recorded the Beethoven symphonies with the Berlin Philharmonic three times, the first in 1962, the second in 1977 and the third between 1984-86. Many, including myself, consider the 1962 cycle to be the best of the three for its immediacy and profundity. In fact, that cycle is still one of the best available at any price. This 2- CD set includes the fifth, sixth and the ninth symphonies in remastered form taken from Karajan's second cycle. All the three symphonies receive outstanding performances with the Berlin Philharmonic in top form. As would be expected, the sound quality is slightly better then the 1962 version. Highly recommended.

First class conductor, orchestra and recording, and a great price too. Worth every penny. Taken me years to purchase a von Karajan recording, no idea why I waited so long
