KARAJAN Holst: The Planets

Herbert von Karajan

“With Karajan at his peak, his extraordinarily magnetic and powerful (1961) Decca account of The Planets is still uniquely individual, bringing a rare tension, an extra magnetism, projected by superb Decca recording, produced by John Culshaw in the Sofiensaal.”
