Many thanks to my friend Mats for this audiophile gift
What makes Karajan such a superb French conductor isn’t just precision and clarity, two virtues we associate with this genre, but his poetic imaginaiton. Where Boulez is crystalline and sparkling in La Mer, Karajan is romantic and delicate. He expresses the music in long sweeps of feeling, but each bar is full of color and nuance. As familiar as La Mer is, to go beyond mere scene-painting (wind, waves, foam, etc.) is difficult. To my ears, Karajan’s interpretation rises to the very top, but you must be able to open your ears to it, since this isn’t Munch-Ansermet-Boulez.

This one is by request…

From the 14LP box set… Edition Wilhelm Furtwängler – RIAS recordings with the Berlin Philharmonic.

For this LP edition, we have taken the decision not to alter the great dynamic range of the original analogue tapes. This means that Furtwangler’s interpretations are made accessible to the listener with their original dynamics. However, alongside the ff passages, with no dynamic alteration, there are also very soft ppp passages during which background noise is audible. – from the back of the box
