Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies 4, 5 & 6 'Pathetique' (Audio CD)
Is it time for a reappraisal of the work of Herbie Karajan?
People who have bought into the myth of his over-streamlined and beautified orchestral surfaces should hear this.
This is an extraordinary, blistering account of the Tchaik sixth which leaps out of the speakers with frightening, white hot urgency and pins you to your chair from the first bar to the last. The recording quality matches the wildness of the reading.
Hair raising stuff!

Why thank ye bernard. Have you ever heard Skrowacewski's (can never spell that buggers name) Halle Bruckner 4. I wonder what you would make of it? Am trying to decide whether to allow myself to re-appraise Karajan's Beethoven.Which I never cared for when younger.Bruckner: Symphony No.4

And may I say that - even when I don't agree with your reviews (although I often do, in fact I hadn't heard this Tchaik 6 before your review put me on to it), for instance I rather like some of Haitink's Bruckner, but would not take it into outer-space in preference to Karajan by a long mile, - I ALWAYS enjoy reading them!!
Cheers and keep them coming!
Aren't people rude though!
