Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Karajan's is an electrifying account... the Berliners play with the freshness of new discovery and it is hard not to respond with amazement at the excitement and exhilaration generated in the finale... it is good to have this great performance available on CD and in such excellent sound... [in]Tapiola every nuance and climax of this great tone poem is reproduced with stunning clarity." -- Gramophone "Karajan's is an electrifying account... the Berliners play with the freshness of new discovery and it is hard not to respond with amazement at the excitement and exhilaration generated in the finale... it is good to have this great performance available on CD and in such excellent sound...
