the Berliner Philharmoniker under Seiji Ozawa and with Anne-Sophie Mutter as
soloist. It left its audience hovering between hushed reverence and deafening
exultation. The Golden Hall of Vienna's Musikverein was the dazzling venue for the
live recording of this concert celebrating the 100th birthday of Herbert von Karajan.
And there Karajan s Berliner never sounded better, evoking a time which selfconfidently
sought the private and subjective in music, and believed it could find
them in the mirror of the works (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). It is a concert
that commemorates Herbert von Karajan for the ages in a supremely moving manner.
