Herbert von Karajan is regarded as one of the greatest conductors of all time. He was the principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years and, under Karajan, the orchestra developed their very own performance culture characterized by a beauty of sound, virtuosity, and perfection. Karajan turned the Berlin Philharmonic into perhaps the most impressive sounding orchestra ever. He aimed to merge the best qualities of his idols, Wilhelm Furtwängler and Arturo Toscanini, particularly their precision and elasticity, into his own style. Karajan’s legendary discography contains some of the most valued interpretations of the repertoire available. Here we have Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic’s recording of three of the most beautiful Beethoven Overtures (Fidelio, Leonore III, Coriolan) coupled with Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony.
