I have listened to all or most of Mozart’s symphonies by many conductors and in my opinion, Herbert von Karajan conducting, is the best. But that’s the point isn’t it, my opinion. There are many different interpretations of Mozart and everyone has a preference. I constantly hear how Mozart’s music should be played with light and grace and the justice this does to his beautiful melodies and yes, there is truth in this. But, there is also an intensity in his music that I often hear and the person to bring that out is Karajan. In fact, that is the beauty of Mozart’s music, the fact that there is something in there for everyone, not to mention it no doubt speaks to his genius. I like Karajan’s aggressive approach to his symphonies here and the balance he strikes in each movement. Symphonies 39, 40 and 41 are my favourites. I never truly understood the depth of despair in Mozart’s symphonies until I heard Karajan’s version of these symphonies. The intensity of the playing in the first movement of no. 40 is a great example of this, as is the intensity and almost victorious last movement in no. 41. And of course I can’t help but feel that the contrapuntal technique in Mozart’s last movement in no. 41 was in tribute to Bach. If you are looking for moderate tempo, with the right intensity, then I recommend these symphonies by Karajan. You won’t be disappointed.

    1. Il “marchio” sulla cover è purtroppo necessario….ci sono molte persone, la fuori, davvero poco gentili che postano roba di altri (per se, niente di brutto) senza menzionare il “propietario” originale.

      Cmq, se conosci qualcuno che ci sa fare con Photoshop…. 😉

  1. Capisco, ma farlo un tantino più piccolo il marchio?
    Le copertine sono bellissime ed ad alta risoluzione, è un vero peccato…
    Grazie comunque per tutto il tuo splendido lavoro 😀 😀

  2. Mozart is my all time favourite. Thanks for this precious gift. This is first time I am downloading your stuff. Actually this is truly unputdownable.

  3. Hi,

    Very nice. Do you mind telling me which cartirdge / turntable you used for this please? Sorry to keep asking, but I am about to buy a cartridge for my new Project RPM 9 and I am finding your transcriptions helpful. Perhaps you could add a brief note to each listing containing this information?

    1. I made this with the Pro-ject turntable + Sumiko Evolution III and Pro-Ject Phonobox II. The phonobox II is really incredible, for only about 100$ the best you can get…and the Evo III (i use it for all my old vinyls) is really temperamentful, live-like…you get it for about 400-450 $

  4. Estaba en mi tienda de discos favorita de mi ciudad allá a finales de los 70 del siglo pasado mirando qué iba a ser mi próximo disco, un sitio acogedor e íntimo, cuando oigo que el dependiente le comenta a otra persona mientras saca el disco de la sinfonía Praga: ‘escucha esto’ -¿es nuevo? -Acabo de recibirlo’. Me aque sonido analógico me pareció de una belleza que aún perdura en mi recuerdo.
    Gracias por este aporte, te mereces mi reconocimiento y mi respeto por tu trabajo.

  5. Parece ser que Karajan tuvo problemas de tipo musical (que no de tipo técnico) a la hora que enfrentarse a las sinfonías de Mozart, al menos eso comentó Michael Glotz a José Luis Pérez de Arteaga en una entrevista. Y creo el sinfonismo de Brahms causaba a Karajan problemas similares, pues él mismo relató que hasta su grabación de los años 80 no consiguió averiguar cómo finalizar la 4ª de la manera que soñaba…

  6. Rach, these are fabulous accounts of Mozart’s late symphonies and great burns on your part. And as far as Karajan is concerned: He Is da MAN… 🙂
    Thank you so much and thank you for sharing your joy in your hobby with those of us who wish to listen. Take care, z

  7. Hi master of ripping, what about VinylStudio from Alpinesoft, for an absolute beginner? Thanks… p.s.
    This Mozart is a balsam for the soul

    1. puoi anche iscriverti sulla pagina di Adobe e scaricare 30 giorni in prova Audition…..ma forse è un tantinello complicato, se sei alle prime armi con questa materia 😉
