Herbert von Karajan conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker for this 1986 recording of Brahms' Second Symphony.
Karajan's interpretations are orthodox and exemplary. He has intellectual mastery over every symphony, even the difficult Third, which clearly presents him with no difficulties at all... the performance of the Second Symphony has a beautifully lyrical, golden quality, with rich, warm phrasing, and plenty of vigour in the last movements.
