Philharmonia Orchestra


Herbert von Karajan


Two classic recordings by Karajan while he was in London as the guest of Walter Legge, founder of the Philharmonia Orchestra. The two Sibelius symphonies form a lavish but unusual combination Symphony No.2, the most popular of the seven created by the composer of Valse Triste, and his curious Symphony No.4, a violent, arid, anti-Malherian dissertation infused with doubt and melancholy. Two paradoxical masterworks.

Recording venues & dates:
- Symphony No.2: Kingsway Hall, London, March 1960
- Symphony No.4: Kingsway Hall, London, July 1953
