Format: Audio CD
No matter what our orientation might be, we all have a Real Boss who must be obeyed lest `the dogs of war' be unleashed in all their ferocity. Caesar Augustus Karajan was no exception. So what that he was Prefect of the Legion Vast and General Music-Director of Europe? At home in Anif Salzburg, he was subject to a power and dominion greater than his own . . . . . . oh, enter the dragon!

Herbie's 1984 re-recording of L'Arlésienne is a landmark for reasons that only now are becoming apparent. It was the first time that the artwork of his consort and Mater Castrorum, Eliette von Karajan, was aired publicly. Much like Derek Zoolander's "Blue Steel" pout, Eliette had a trademark all of her own: the Murk of Blue. Art-historians have long debated its significance. Is it a representation of primordial chaos? Can it underwrite militant atheism? Quod erat demonstrandum, does God play dice with the universe? Debates and symposia will continue. While her handiwork was splattered across the Karajan Edition from 1988, one could argue that she never surpassed this onslaught. Sovereign indeed is the Murk.

Turning to lesser considerations, the music-making here is fabulous. Perhaps it's beauty for beauty's sake but the Berlin Philharmonic was such a miraculous beast at the time, one surrenders more abjectly than the French in 1940. The Adagietto, where two elderly people who were once lovers in their youth reunite, is an invitation to self-immolate. The Carillon that follows, for the length of its duration, is an ultimate end in itself. This is one of those rare instances where one of Karajan's digital re-takes eclipses an earlier effort from analogue times. I cannot detect any of the wider tensions that were operant at the time in the celestial union.

I cannot detect any of the wider tensions that were operant at the time in the celestial union. The digital recording is no deterrent: indeed, there's plenty of air to the aural spectrum (the cymbals, for instance, are far less constricted in impact than their predecessors from 1970). I presume that the Carmen suite is taken from the near-contemporaneous recording with Baltsa: it's great fun.

Herein, one appreciates anew the genius of Bizet and his godlike ability to create without sweat. And brave the Murk if you dare.

This isn't the newest recording of these lovely, and often overlooked, pieces, but this recording is worthy of your attention. Bizet isn't Beethoven but he is Bizet, and these melodies still enchant.
