Mahler - Symphony No. 9 - Karajan - Berliner Philharmoniker on 180g Import 2LP Box Set
Dissatisfied with his 1981 recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 9 with the Berlin Philharmonic, Herbert von Karajan took on the work once again a year later during the Berlin Festival Weeks of 1982. The results were exemplary in the eyes of both the famous conductor and the critics alike and it stands as one of his finest achievements. Gramophone hailed that, "Certainly this is the finest live performance of a Mahler symphony to have appeared on any kind of record since Mengelberg's 1939 account of the Fourth Symphony." Mastered from the original analogue masters and pressed at Pallas GmbH Germany.
