    Not everybody in this forum hate countertenors, the Rat Lohengrin, 4:33 and Anna Netrebko singing Isolde

    We've got a whole thread about these unusual characters:
    Countertenors?

    We should carry the discussion over to there.

    They're male falsettists. I don't hate them, but I usually prefer a good female mezzo.

    Heard any of them, Bill? Would be very interested in what you think/may have thought about them.

    I've heard a few of them, but not in a whille. My recollection is that the conducting is generally pretty alert and lively and the orchestral playing is mostly decent, as are the sonics (LP surface noise aside) Probably not essential for someone who already has one of the other complete sets, but that probably won't stop me from buying it once it's available.

    There are probably a few symphonies on YouTube, if you want to hear for yourself.

    I think that only his 80s Beethoven has not been reissued.
    I can only think about his Bruckner recordings for the 10CD box, but that would mean that the spare releases (Two Te Deums, Vienna No.7 & No.8 & Early Berlin No.9) wouldn't be included.
    With a quick search of "Bruckner" in bookbutler (in order of release by default), "Le Sinfonie" by Karajan and the BPO shows as the first result, so one of the fan-favourite Bruckner cycles in this forum will see the light this summer with a new look and surely with a 24/96 remaster from the Japanese SACD editions. In fact, many members in this forum complained about the sonics, so this is the chance we've been waiting for.

    No guess for the 5CD set. 80s Beethoven is still possible, while I've also seen that his Tchaikovsky cycle was released in 4CDs in the Symphony edition because Symphony No.5 was split between discs 4 and 5. If they respected the continuity, that would make 5 CDs and a candidate for the latest remastered Karajan cycle to be released by Deutsche Grammophon.

    Also, what do we have here??? Out April 26th!
