The other reviewer who used the word 'erotic' isn't far off the mark when it comes to Karajan's Bolero and Daphnis et Chloe readings. Enough said to true believers, and I suppose nothing would be enough for naysayrs.
The remastered analog recording sounds gorgeous in its detail and warmth; the Berliners play like gods, and Karajan's contorl seems superhuman. But that's what carpers complain aoubt, isn't it even as they extol Toscanini for the same thing? So be it. This CD deserves to stand among his classic recordings. Can't go wrong here who'd have guessed that von Karajan could sound so French?!
Neither of whom, of course, is French, either. They just sound more evocative in this music to me. One person found this helpful. Herbert Karajan was the greatest conductor to record, along side of Neville Marriner.
Karajan has done the Debussy Prelude justice, along with the Haitink, which may be more powerful, oddly enough. But La Mer in Karajan's hands is powerful and expansive, yet subtle and lovely.
I bought this mainly for Ravel's Bolero, and that is wonderful and quiet version, not as boisterous as other versions. And i had never heard Daphnis and Chloe but a great surprise, not knowing the piece. This cd is an excellent value and very much worth twice as much to pay. You'll have this one in your collection until the end of time.
Karajan and the Berlin at their OCD best! Great recording!!! See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. The fuss is about what a superb exponent of this music HVK turned out to be, who knew? The performances are perfect and the album now one of my firm favourites. What a bargain. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. I have been searching for the right arrangements of Ravel's Bolero for ages.
And all this time it was right in front of me. Indeed, putting various passages of all three recordings side by side, one realizes that the differences of detail are small the opening of the ''De l'aube a midi sur la mer'' is marginally more measured in the account than in or but it is one's overall and inevitably subjective impression of the three performances that tells.
The opening strikes me as a bit self-conscious, whereas both this newcomer and the record bring the score immediately before one's ears. The new recording incidentally is among the best to have emerged from the Philharmonie in recent months, and the sound of the Berlin strings is sumptuous with detail well placed and in a generally natural perspective.
The new La mer is very much closer to the earlier reading and it is a joy to relish the beauty of the playing in such clear, well-defined sound. However, of the three, the account is always the one I want to go on listening to.
Notes and Editorial Reviews Careful remastering certainly makes the Debussy items sound fresher and more vivid than ever before, and the performances are terrific. La Mer was a Giulini signature piece, and this is his finest recording of it, capturing the music's capricious sense of flow, perfect in transitions, and with climaxes that preserve the music's clarity and balance without ever sounding excessively restrained.
The Three Nocturnes share similar virtues, provided the somewhat acid-toned Philharmonia oboes in Nuages don't bug you. Vendeur : recordsale. Prix : 2. Vendeur : resellrecords. Prix : 7.

Album), for all the beauties of the orchestral playing and the splendour of the digital sound, this Prelude a l'apres-midi does not capture the magic Karajan distilled in his account: this remains one of the most beautiful readings of this work ever committed to record. Where Boulez is crystalline and sparkling in La Mer, Karajan is romantic and delicate. Vocal jazz. The second Daphnis Suite may enjoy more exciting interpretations elsewhere particularly in the final dancebut few more successfully reveal the music's sensuous curves, thanks in part to a generous indulgence of the Album). Deals and Shenanigans. Elsewhere—and most importantly, in the ''Pantomime'' movement of Daphnis —the flute vibrato is less extreme and obtrusive.
