 Polished and athletic! January 4, 2013 By Olin Williams (Hillsboro, OR) See All My Reviews "This is a wonderful release, and comes up shining in the most recent remastering. Not everyone is fond of Karajan's approach to Schubert, but this recording is hard to beat. The performance is vigorous and has a gleaming quality to the rich sound." Report Abuse
