Amazing energetic performances.,
This review is from: Beethoven: 9 Symphonies; Overtures (Audio CD)
With an energy right through the heart of every symphony and amazing sound from the Berliners, Karajan here delivers arguably his greatest Beethoven cycle (ardent fans of the 1960's set will argue.)
The 9th is the standout performance from the set but the sheer depth of sound in the 3rd and 7th is spine tingling. This for me is the best of all Karajan's stereo Beethoven symphony sets and should be sampled without hesitation.
