Performance:   
Somebody thinks that this is a classic, but I don't like this. The recording - which was made in the church - isn't good. I cannot heard clearly the orchestration's details. It is a pity.
If you want Karajan, I recommend Karajan's second performance (1980s) with Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. It is much better than this: it is recorded at the orchestra's own concert hall. The interpretation is breathtaking: the begin's famous theme sounds magnificent! For example, organ's deep low C is VEEEEEEERY DEEP! :)
So, buy the later performance.

By the way, Deutsche Grammophon released some weeks ago the great Karajan box, which contains 70 CDs. If you are Karajan fan, you cannot miss it. Well, I haven't it...
