I bought the 1967 recording of Berliner Philharmonics playing shostakovich 10 under Karajan.
Very impressive untill the solopart during the second movement with the Clarinett and Oboe alone.
Suddenly it wasn´t tight anymore and the clarinett and the oboeparts were clearly out of sync.
I have often heard that the Berliner Philharmonics are the best Symphony Orchestra in the world and that they were even better during the days of Karajan.
Shostakovich 10 is not a hard Symphony and the timing is easy so why didn´t they play in time?
