Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...With the Karajan remastered 1973 recording we enter a grander league in terms of orchestral size and marvellous precision and integration. The soloist Michel Schwalbe produces a rich tone throughout and the engineers have achieved a most believable balance in a large-sounding acoustic without spotlighting... [This CD] restores most enjoyable 1971 performances to the catalogue of Albinoni's justifiably popular Adagio and Corelli's 'Christmas Concerto'..." -- Gramophone [9/1985] "...With the Karajan remastered 1973 recording we enter a grander league in terms of orchestral size and marvellous precision and integration.
