Karajan: Beethoven Symphonies (1963) is a set of studio recordings made in 1961 and 1962 by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karajan. It is the second of four cycles of Beethoven's nine symphonies that von Karajan conducted, and the first of three for the German record label Deutsche Grammophon. The complete set was first released in 1963 in Europe, and as a result the cycle of symphonies is now generally known as the 1963 cycle.

Renews automatically. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This is a recording of the middle 2 of Beethoven's 9 symphonies: the 5th & 6th, both performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 1985 by Herbert von Karajan. I have many of Karajan's recordings of the 5th Symphony: the 1954 Philharmonia; the 1963 and 1977 Berlin Phil. recordings to name a few. I must admit that the 1977 recording is the best of these, in my own humble opinion; the '63 would be a close second.
