Info for Sibelius: Symphony No. 5 & Finlandia, Op.26
Before he was appointed music director for life of the Berlin Philharmonic, Karajan was closely associated with the Philharmonia in its early years, although he never held an official title with the orchestra. The founder of the Philharmonia and legendary EMI Producer, Walter Legge, was against appointing an official principal conductor but it was Karajan who built the orchestra into one of the finest ensembles in the world, and made numerous recordings for EMI, including all the Beethoven symphonies and stereo gems like this Sibelius recording.
“There is some wonderful playing from the Philharmonia, of course, especially beautifully soft, feathery, string playing. The scherzo itself is played with great brilliance”. (Gramophone)
Herbert von Karajan, conductor
Recorded on 20, 21 & 23 September 1960 (Symphony No.5) and 5 & 6 January 1959 (Finlandia) at London’s famous Kingsway Hall venue
Engineered by Douglas Larter (Harold Davidson – Finlandia)
Produced by Walter Legge
