Mozart, 3 German Dances; Handel, Water Music Suite (arranged by Sir Hamilton Harty)

 

 

 

 

 
They are posted here on a scratchy LP from the 1960’s that a friend digitalized for me.

Conducted by Herbert von Karajan.

 

 
*****************************************************

 

My older brother gave me this LP as a Christmas present when I was in college.

I played it so often I wore it out. I purchased another album as a replacement.

My brother said, “guess it proves you really liked the gift.”

These performances by Herbert von Karajan are utterly charming. I was just getting into classical music then.

What a way to begin.
