Herbert von Karajan conducts the Berlin Philharmonic for Mahler's Fifth Symphony. Christa Ludwig joins in a benchmark recording of Mahler’s song cycle "Kindertotenlieder."
Classics Today writes: "This is a work that plays to Karajan’s strengths. Primarily, it demands supreme virtuosity from the orchestral strings and brass. Karajan and his Berliners are in their element here. It almost goes without saying that this version of the Adagietto is the most gorgeous in the catalogue."
