    No excuses loaded with ifs and assurances need be made for Bohm's repertoire and legacy.

    I've seen the following CD of Beethoven's 6th and Schubert's 5th recommended a few times on this forum, and the Amazon reviewers rate it highly. These performances may be the best of both symphonies I've heard thus far.



    His Mozart 41 is excellent. However, I do not like his recordings of the earlier/middle ones and I prefer Marriner and Mackerras for those.

    Don't like Böhm. Racist little bugger. And takes Mozart and Beethoven too slow. Doesn't bring out the character if the music.
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.

    He was best at Strauss for some reason. He takes more liberty with Strauss' scores than with the standard repertoire.

    I've always liked Bohm's Mozart symphonies. But then, I like Karl Richter's Bach.

    Did Karajan even do Bach? Oh wait he did, just sounded like Brahms.
