. . . simply untouchable in the art of conducting . . .
[477 4152]: Here is 'the Karajan sound' in full cry, blending weight and drama with momentum and exquisite shading.
[477 4352]: Karajan championed this work as a profound statement on World War II, and endows it with the utmost intensity.
[477 4222]: Karajan's sumptuous yet flowing treatment of this score is a perfect foil to the rich purity of Janowitz's singing.
[474 5372]: Recorded live, this account offers blends of calculation and spontaneity, sweep and detail: Karajan's most expressive Mahler performance.
[476 1654]: Another live recording endows the monumental scope typical of Karajan's Bruckner with a sense of humanity that is enormously moving.
