(3 out of 5 stars)

"The music in this DVD is very good, the performance is good. I give it 3 stars because it was very annoying to watch the whole concert with the conductor's arm obstructing the instruments. You dont get to view the whole orchestra playing, but only reduced parts and with shots that are too close. The camera focuses for too long on the back of the conductor. I also have the ninth symphony and it also has the same problem. Great music, horrible video thet gets on your nerves..."
It's good but

"This is a good recording. Good sound quality.
The Beethoven Symphonies recorded by Karajan and the Berlin Phil. in the 70's have more energy and aparkle."
Not too fast!

"Many reviewers argue that Karajan plays too fast. I am not a musician, but if you compare this DVD with Solti's, the latter, in my opinion, is boring, too slow. Who knows how Beethoven would has play it? Course I do not, but this symphony played as Karajan does, is much more strong and full of emotions than played slower. I really like the seventh played fast. Karajan is the best playing Beethoven."
I like it

"Dude, Allegretto implies it's fast. Beethoven's metronome markings for the 2nd movement of the 7th are a lot faster than most conductors conduct at. Von Karajan does it the right way."
