 Super Offer! April 13, 2014 By bess holloway (Boulder, CO) See All My Reviews "Just getting started or simply wanting another version of these standards, you can't go wrong at this price. Von Karajan is so much a part of music history--a virtual requirement in anyone's collection. All symphonies recorded in late 1977 and early 1978." Report Abuse
