Herbert von Karajan conducts famous overtures by Beethoven and Brahms Berliner Philharmoniker

About

The collaboration between Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker was one of the most productive and influential in the history of music recording. Famous during his life for having re-recorded his emblematic repertoire (Beethoven, Brahms, and Bruckner) as a sort of definitive final artistic testament, the Austrian conductor also dedicated certain programs and recordings to fragments of works, all the while preserving pieces' integrity and the rigor of his musical direction. This concert from 1985 is an example of his subtle and intelligent approach, combining overtures by Beethoven and Brahms into a single, illuminating program.
