Format: Audio CD
Karl Bohm had the misfortune of looking like a flustered bank manager with steamed up prescription glasses. Also through no fault of his own when english speakers try and pronounce his name they tend to sound like Inspector Closeau saying "bomb". I know this is irrelevant tittle tattle but I contend that if Karl Bohm were alive now the marketing geniuses at Universal Music would have changed his name to Karl Von Boom and given him an enormous mane of golden hair using cutting edge trichological science so that he resembled Siegfried Fischbacher. Then he could have taken on the mighty HVK on the proverbial level playing field.

With due deference to BMO'H whose opinions I respect and whose reviews give me great entertainment I must register a contrary opinion on this disc. Yes I acknowledge the Paris is the weak link. It starts with a bang but seams to suffer from fuel starvation in the middle and last movements. However leaving aside the Paris you get a great 25 and a great 29 on a budget disc. The 25 is storming. The first movement was used to great effect in the film "Amadeus". This is Mozart as a force of nature and Bohm whether he looks like a bank manager or not leads the Berlin Phil into action like a force majeure. The 29 is maybe not quite so powerful but it is still a magnificent performance. Both symphonies have an architectural quality to the their structure. They range in mood from the monumental to the ethereal as played here and I enjoyed being carried along on their force. Not everyone (anyone!) likes their Mozart served up this way nowadays so be warned if you prefer historically informed performances.

Dick Cheney, keeper of the secrets of the deep, claims that waterboarding is not torture. This is sophistry beyond jesuitry. One hopes that Jesse Ventura, encamped off the grid, gets the chance to acquaint this éminence grise with its joys and tribulations. Moreover, one wonders whether the former Vice-President would be so sanguine if he heard the disc in question. Two of the triptych - K 183 & the Paris - make Plutonium-239 look like candy.

I'm a fan of Uncle Karl's cycle of Mozart's symphonies with the Berlin Philharmonic. Indeed, I possess the remastered version and the shelf-clogger from the Eighties in green porphyry. Nevertheless, it contains a number of shockers, the worst of which is the Little G Minor Symphony where the finale is slower than molasses. Prolonged exposure leads to dementia and shrinkage (to wit, the doom of Sebastian Bumfree, Amazon's geriatric stalker). Much the same could be said of its counterpart in the Paris. Mozart stipulated that it be played fierily; Uncle Karl responds with its antithesis. It's nothing short of a disgrace.

That leaves the performance of K 201. The Berliners of the time cannot but help make a sumptuous sound. Even so, it's all for nothing. Was Mozart 18 or 85 when he wrote this work? Uncle Karl postulates the latter. However malfeasant it might be, it's not as toxic as its siblings.

This disc was issued in 1997. At the time, I thought it was a joke. Now I view it as an agent of natural selection and annihilatory at that. I was not wrong. Let's finish with on a minatory note with Ted Hughes:

"And a blackbird sitting in the plum tree
Shakes and shakes its voice.
And I too am a ghost. I am the ghost
Of a great general, silent at my chess.
A million years have gone over
As I finger one piece.

The dusk waits.

The spears, the banners, wait."

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! 29 Jan. 2006
By Mark R. De Yoe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Karl Bohm seems like he must pass the espresso around, get the members all reved up to go, and then takes off, but not too fast. Just very lively. Too, he is helped by the Berlin Phil's outstanding violins. Not as well known as Bohms 35-41 double disk set, but just as high quality. Symphony 25 in G minor is my favorite Mozart Symphony. It rocks!
