. . . it's great to see such a novel way to get all this great music at once. Universal's "Three Classic Albums" series is attractive and affordable, and novices and collectors alike will be pleased with the slim and retro-style packaging. What's more, all three of these albums testify to Karajan and Mutter's unique partnership and artistic gifts . . . [Mozart]: no one can deny the sheer beauty that this pair lovingly conjures . . . her teenage gifts still command considerable respect . . . [Beethoven]: Mutter really does possess a wonderful tone, and even at this early stage she proved entirely worthy of the music. And the Philharmonic is glorious, a reminder of how great this orchestra could sound . . . [CD 3]: the performances here are almost universally acclaimed. Of the two, the Bruch is the standout, a magnificently played and conducted take that still holds your attention [today] . . . Mutter really steals the show with a warm, singing quality throughout. The Mendelssohn is also distinguished, a fine account . . . the Berlin forces again provide superlative musical support . . . The sound for all three albums is perfectly acceptable. Karajan and Mutter really did create some tremendous music together, and the results do everyone proud. If you don't own these albums, you ought to, and this is the easiest and most affordable way to get them . . .
