5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tchaikovsky!, 13 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies 4, 5 & 6 "Pathétique" (Audio CD)
I love all of Tchaikovsky's Symphonies, particularly the 5th and 6th, and certainly played by Herbert Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. I have the 6th [Pathetique] on one CD by Penguin Classics [1977] and I know many people, including critics, think that that recording is the finest version Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic did. This famous recording is also on this 2 CD set for DG along with the 4th and 5th Symphonies that I am now reviewing. I like their recording of the 4th symphony here, which they also did in 1977 along with the 5th Symphony which is good but not in the same league as the 4th or 6th Symphonies in this set. In my opinion Von Karajan/BO's best recording of the 5th Symphony was done in 1972 and is on a 2 CD set recording for EMI that I have also reviewed. But if you are looking for classic recordings of Tchaikovsky's 4th and 6th Symphonies, then this 2 CD set is for you. Highly recommended.
