Herbert Von Karajan 101

Herbert von Karajan is one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, who was responsible for discovering some great talent in his day, such as a very young violinist, Anne-Sophie Mutter, who rose to become a star under his tutelage and remains so to this day. Hence, the latest compilation of <Herbert von Karajan 101> not all of his interpretations are to our liking, but he was in his prime before such questions of early music interpretation really came to the fore. Perhaps his Mozart is a little too old school full on for some, but it was a product of the time and when it is being played by two of the greatest orchestras in their prime then just enjoy the sound for what it was. The set covers mainstream orchestral to ballet music and once again, there is something for everyone. We particularly like his version of Holst’s “The Planets” and his Strauss is impeccable, given that some of his greatest performances were in the Strauss operas and J. Strauss operettas with some of the greatest singers of the 20th century, so you will have some great moments with everything on offer in this set. For those loving the sumptuous sounds of such great orchestras under such a star conductor worth for the collection.
