5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Mozart 20 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Karajan splits opinions quite distinctly with late Mozart symphonies. Maybe these are not definitive for our age but I am very glad they are available. Big band Mozart, very well played and with some spirit. To suggest Karajan did not understand Mozart is not acceptable. I remember hearing a broadcast of Don Giovanni from the Salzburg festival many years ago with Karajan conducting an electrifying performance which I have never forgotten. The man was a very great Mozartian and attempts to sideline his legacy should be viewed carefully. Unless you are a period instrument fanatic you will enjoy these superb performances. The recording quality is very good also.

Mozart's last seven symphonies, written close to the end of his life, show a maturity and consistency that surpasses his earlier symphonic works. From the drama and passion of the famous first movement of no. 40 to the serene beauty of no. 39's slow movement, this is undoubtedly Mozart at his very best.
Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic are also on absolutely top form on this recording, giving insightful and moving performances throughout. The strings are rich and warm in the slow movements, crisp and rhythmic in the fast passages, while the woodwind display a consistency of tone and clarity of intonation which does great justice to Mozart's lyrical solo writing.
All in all this two-disc set is an absolute joy to listen to, and also comes with informative and very readable sleeve notes. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 7 Jan 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although perhaps not to everyone's tastes, Karajan's Mozart is highly polished and sounds fresh with bright tempi. The string playing is as one has come to expect from Karajan and the Berlin crew and the woodwind play with great verve, though are somewhat further back in the recording that with some smaller ensemble recordings. Especially good are the readings of the 39th (the tonality of which greatly suits the Berlin broad sound), the opening movement of 40 and the simply amazing final movement of 41, which even Beethoven wished he could aspire to musically!

1.0 out of 5 stars Karajan at his worst 10 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought these recordings because they were on offer, and could not have been more disappointed with them.
Herbert von Karajan was one of the most prolific recorders of all time, and he volume of recorded music conducted by him with the Berlin Philharmonic and other orchestras is massive. Some of that music is unsurpassable (especially early recordings of Wagner and Strauss, and late recordings of Bruckner and Mahler), but other recordings are less successful. These recordings come across much as I suspect they were: recordings professionally churned out for commercial gain.
What is especially disappointing about Karajan's recordings is his growing fascination with beauty of sound at the expense of all else. This obsession is very much in evidence in these Mozart recordings. Karajan's Berlin philharmonic play everything with a languid legato that takes all the excitement out of these recordings. Instead, what one gets is a set of recordings lacking rhyhmic definition, tension or excitement. The faster movements are particularly unsuccessful - the first movement of the famous no. 40 is dreadful.
There are much better recordings available. If you want the Berlin Philharmonic, buy Bohm, not Karajan.
