  1. This version has a slightly different sleeve to Holst* - Herbert von Karajan, Vienna Philharmonic* - The Planets in that the Decca logo on the sleeve front is superimposed over the artwork instead of in a thick white band at the top. Also, 'stereo' is in very small print at the top of left corner on the sleeve front.

  4. Not even Dutoit, Levine, Gardiner, Mehta, Boult, or any of the many others that I've heard can play it like the newsnesouthvadutosrobovacoparo.coinfo is the first "Planets" I ever listened to, and with out a doubt the best. I've also have his Vienna Philharmonic version (which is also very fine,and well recorded from the early 60's) but this is the better of the two/5().
  5. Karajan was not the refined, calculated maestro: great for Bruckner or Mahler, not necessarily so for Holst - in , as he would become by The Vienna Philharmonic sounds terrific, much better than the Berlin Philharmonic was in for Karajan's DDD (DG) "Planets"/5(9).

  8. His last affair was this performance of Holst's The Planets with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recorded in bone-crushing -- but still deep and colorful -- sound by John Culshaw, Karajan's view of The Planets, like his view of Vaughan Williams and Britten, is decidedly superficial. This is not to say that his conducting is anything less than superb.7/
