Here is a terrific bargain for collectors should they not already
have these splendid videos. This compilation includes all of
the famous conductor's Deutsche Grammophon video
recordings (as well as those for Philips), all
of which have been issued before, but now we have all are
in one compact
box. Complete track listings and timings are included, but not
program notes that were included with original issues, the only
debit of this welcome reissue. Carlos inherited the precision
and insight of his famous father Erich, and these performances,
mostly recorded live in concert, display these qualities. We
have the two New Year's Concerts, and both performances of Rosenkavalier,
one from Vienna, the other from Bavaria. Complete track listings
and timings are provided, no texts. A wonderful value! This is
a class reissue.
