For many years, Beethoven’s Second and Eighth symphonies were regarded as more minor works in the cycle of the nine symphonies. Due in no small part to Karajan’s decisive, clearly structured interpretations with the Berliner Philharmoniker made in the 1960s, the importance of these symphonies in Beethoven’s œuvre was clearly demonstrated. The present performances from 1971 were documented as studio recordings.
