I think the last album was Puccini's La Boheme w/ Pavarotti, Freni, Harwood, et al. and Von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic.

All that was in the mid to late 1960's, and then it was Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" a bunch of Alman Brothers stuff, Traffic and the Who well into the 1970's.

Great stuff! Saw Greg Allman Tuesday night at the House of Blues...man, he's still got it! Great show if you get a chance, not like most of those retreads who can't sing anymore.

Don't be coerced by that sweet talk ..von Karajan was just a Germanic 'thumper' donning his jackboots, stridently bangin' away all over the place and intensely forcing the highs and lows out of the orchestra in every piece clubbing the audience into submission, the Louisville Slugger of conductors !


Carlo Maria Giulini is the man for you, Italian ..sensitive ..swings..
a master of subtlety who delivers.. with out beating you up !

Most highly recommended is his Mozart's Requiem K626 (Sony) 1990

..and especially his 'Live in Tokyo' Beethoven's 5th, it swings ..HARD ...

Quote:
"This makes every other performance of the 5th sound self-conscious and fussy. Giulini was channeling not only Beethoven here, but the 19th century as an ethos, the almost sexual longing to commune with nature, all future and no past, as if Beethoven had written the thing yesterday and this was the first interpretation. Most conductors who take on this most battle-scarred of warhorses are carrying on a dialogue with other conductors, emphasizing a pizzicato here or a bassline there, micromanaging details, carrying on an Oedipal struggle with Walter or Fuertwangler, to the point where we get further and further away from who Beethoven really was.
Giulini, like a Method actor, goes straight to the source. It's so well-paced that other recordings seem to last for centuries in comparison, and the climaxes will have you bouncing off the walls. This ranks as the best Beethoven on offer".
