Description

Herbert von Karajan was one of the greatest conductors of all time, and although primarily associated with the Berlin Philharmonic and Deutsche Grammophon, he made a number of outstanding recordings at the beginning of his career for Decca with the Vienna Philharmonic, many of which are included in the 6CD set 101 Herbert von Karajan. Among the many highlights of this collection are perennial favorites such as Holst's The Planets, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet and music from Griegs Peer Gynt, together with the last two symphonies of Mozart.

Ballet music features strongly with a whole CD devoted to highlights from Tchaikovsky's three masterpieces, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty, while a further CD includes highlights from Adam's delightful Giselle. The final CD brings more ballet, this time courtesy of Deutsche Grammophon and the Berlin Philharmonic, including the uproarious arrangement of Offenbach's music in Gaite parisienne, the bitter-sweet charm of Chopin's Les Sylphides, and the ballet music from Gounod's Faust.
