Its a bargain - buy it!
on 9 August 2017
I never warmed to the Capriccio Italian until now! It always sounded second rate to me but having heard what Karajan and the BPO find in it I have completely changed my mind: they play it for all its worth and the result is wonderful!.
I have had a soft spot for the first three symphonies for a long time and of course these are superlative, beautiful performances which I find very moving, nevertheless it is the performance of the Capriccio which really catches fire and is worth the price just for that, include the symphonies and it is a bargain - buy it!
