This DVD should have been made twenty years earlier, with a zesty, energetic Karajan at work. However, it is a great display of his later years, in which he explores more the inner worlds of his composers. The orchestra's sound is fabulous, and the photography, typical great coordinated effort to emphasize the inner works of this great ensemble. A good buy !

The DVD medium and the Dvorak piece serve each other well in this performance. 5.1 sound allows for greater articulation of instruments, despite the 448 kbs bandwidth. The film's editing reinforces this articulation by focusing on individuals or groups of performers during key passages. This is accomplished at the loss of a wider perspective and 'wall of sound' that devotees of a traditional concert might relish. What is gained, in the fusion of audio and video detail, is an appreciation of the roles played by the instruments and a better sense of the structure of the composition.
The power and dynamics of this piece highlight the capabilities of a good system. Properly reproduced, the horn sections are sweeping and the lower register strings and percussion are tightly focused.

Karajan was undeniably one of the greatest Bruckner interpreters of the century and here he tackles the final Bruckner symphony late in his career. The Bruckner Ninth is one of the most profound symphonies ever written. It is a work which deals unmistakably with "last things" - the passage from this world to the next. Bruckner was very ill when he wrote this piece and the music reflects his mental and physical condition. It's an anguished work in which the great composer bids farewell to the world and, at the very end, finds himself in paradise. Karajan was an old man when he conducted this performance in Berlin. He undoubtedly sympathized with the feelings of the composer when the work was written. As always, Karajan is in complete control; powerful in the great climaxes and lovingly sensitive in the many moments of wistful introspection in the mighty slow movement - perhaps the greatest symphonic slow movement ever written. In short, this is a great performance and a fine tribute to a great composer and a great conductor.

This another example of fenomenal late Karajan. He really got into the inner aspects of this symphony. My most favorite part is the intentional delay in the low string notes just before the first crescendo in the opening movement. It really gets the american indian spirit like no other version does. The performance is magnificent, almost I would like to see it with the Berliner instead of the Wiener. It seems that at the time Karajan was having problems with the Berliner because of his favoritism to a female clarinetist while the orchestra member said she didn't match (she can be seen performing some Beethoven symphonies in other DVDs of this series). But, coming back to this performance, the Wiener philharmoniker is wonderful and the sound is rich and pure. I you already know this piece, you'll rediscover it in this version. I recommend it.
