One of Karajan's earliest recorded encounters with Mahler resulted in a powerful and intense experience . . .

Christa Ludwig's velvet mezzo and sumptuous legato are movingly heard in "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" . . . "Um Mitternacht" has a sombre, hieratic majesty . . . From the opening cor anglais solo, Herbert von Karajan coaxes playing of sculpted finesse from the Berlin Philharmonic . . . Ludwig's artistry and vocal mastery are irrefutable.
