Notes and Editorial Reviews

"These performances were much admired when first issued, as part of Karajan's four-LP Second Viennese School set. As we would expect this conductor is as disposed to emphasize the late-romantic background to these works as Boulez (on CBS) was to offer them as background to his own postromantic compositional world." - Gramophone "These performances were much admired when first issued, as part of Karajan's four-LP Second Viennese School set.
