5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise! Karajan's great feat, January 24, 2002
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies no 4, 5, & 6 / Karajan, Berlin PO (Audio CD)
I myself have never been a huge fan of Karajan (I prefer recordings by Toscanini, Walter, Haitink, Szell, Reiner, and others like them) but these recordings of Tchaikovsky's symphonies with the Berlin Philharmonic are breathtaking.
Though there are tempo modifications made by Karajan to the score, they are certainly sensible make this performance all the more moving. The climax near the end of the first movement of the Symphony No. 6 gave me such chills and nearly brought me to tears. Never had I heard such a passionate moment, from ANY other recording.
The Fourth Symphony is a spectacular performance, exhibiting the virtuosity of the orchestra. The Fifth Symphony is an absolute triumph, while the performance of the Sixth explores the entire range of human emotions.
I would admit that this a very UN-Karajan performance...the timpani is never too loud, the strings are always very lush, the winds impeccable, and Karajan's conducting is very tasteful in realtion to the Tchaikovsky's score.
Highly reccommended to Karajan and, particular, non-Karajan fans alike.
