5.0 out of 5 stars Passionate, romantic and thrilling performances 10 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
I've only recently bought this, but it's already up there amongst my very favourite CDs. Karajan was born to play Wagner, his trademark "legato" at it's very best in particular on track 2, the Prelude from Lohengrin, Act 1, which is absolutely sublime. It reminds me of angels making their way up to heaven and getting "blown away" at the climax of the long crescendo as they arrive at the gates! (Probably not quite what Wagner had in mind, though).

Someone on Amazon's USA site wrote "These are some of the most passionate, romantic and utterly thrilling performances of Wagner orchestral music you can hope to hear". I only wish it were a 2 CD box, so it could include my favourite Ride of the Valkyries and more. It was recorded in 1974 when Karajan had spent years forming the BPO into the best orchestra in the world. Digitally remastered in 2001, so the recording quality is excellent.

I recommend this unhesitatingly to anyone who loves fine, thoroughly well-wrought, profoundly emotive music, evoking @ once epic grandeur & acute sensitivity.. performance & recording here merely permit this sterling music to speak very eloquently for itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Karajan's Phenomenal Wagner 5 Nov 2006
By dv_forever - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains the exact same performances and the exact same remastering as the EMI "Great Recordings of the Century" release. The only difference is that the tracks are reordered. I have reviewed that Karajan CD and my review stands for this CD too, since it is the same thing in different packaging.

These are some of the most passionate, romantic and utterly thrilling performances of Wagner orchestral music you can hope to hear. Herbert von Karajan was the greatest conductor alive at the time these recordings were made and the Berlin Philharmonic was the greatest orchestra in the world. United in Wagner's music, they send chills up the spin. The sound is great, for such a cheap price you can't be without this recording whether you buy it here in the "Karajan Collection" or the "Great Recordings of the Century".
