Beethoven’s Egmont (the complete work, not just the famous overture) and Battle Symphony (aka Wellington’s Victory, aka Battle of Vittoria) are perhaps the best kept secrets in classical music. Egmont, in particular, features some highly original and beautiful music for solo voice (soprano) and orchestra. From the highly charged and Beethovenian-dramatic overture to the individual entr’actes to the two Lieders, the music is enjoyable and awe-inspiring. Karajan, at the height of his career at the time of this recording, brings out every magistical note of the piece.

I really love Wellington’s Victory, even though it’s got a low reputation among purists, perhaps just a tad higher than that enjoyed by Tchaikovasky’s more popular 1812 Overture. But it’s got lots of fun noise, innovative scoring, three popular tunes (including “The Bear Went Over the Mountain,” aka Malbrouk), and is just thoroughly enjoyable as a light piece. Unfortunately, this Karajan recording sounds uninspired and rather boring. Instead, the one made by Marriner and his orchestra featured in Brillian Classics’ Complete Beethoven set is a much better performance.
