About

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.

17 CDs presented in a lift-off box with booklet including new liner notes by Berliner Philharmoniker intimus Helge Grünewald and rare Böhm photographs.

“I am a simple craftsman. My baton is not a magic wand, it doesn’t cast a spell on nobody, and it isn’t meant to. Enchantment should come solely from the music.” - Karl Böhm

“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
