Karl Bohm: The Great Recordings 1953 - 1972
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Karl Bohm

[ Deutsche Grammophon / 17 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Thursday 16 March 2017

The recordings of Karl Böhm have lately enjoyed a well-deserved renaissance. The Austrian conductor's emphasis on rhythmic, textural and structural clarity give us timeless interpretations of Mozart (his greatest love), as well as Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Richard Strauss, Haydn and Mahler.

"Böhm possesses an exceptionally fine feeling for the tempo of a composition; under his baton the "correct" tempo seems to be established of its own accord." GRAMOPHONE

• PACKAGING: A lift-off box with booklet including new liner notes by Berliner Philharmoniker intimus Helge Grünewald and rare Böhm photographs
