Listening to both in a side by side comparison and I have to say the interpretations are remarkably similar. I too am intrigued why the live performance gets all the accolades.

I also wonder what others mean when they consider Karajan to have "butchered" this symphony. Having heard multiple recordings of this work I understand perhaps not liking a particular interpretation as much, but I don't see how Karajan distorts anything.
