Herbert von Karajan conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in ballet music from the operas Aida, Khovanshchina, Prince Igor, La Gioconda, and Tannhäuser.

Of late, the major record labels have had a tendency to repeatedly reissue their reissues. It's cheaper than making new recordings, certainly. EMI Classics is playing that game with their new "Karajan Collection", although some of the once-again reissued recordings have been out of the CD catalogue for a few years. The present reissue, which is part of that series, nevertheless is inexplicably new to CD – "inexplicably" because this was one of Karajan's most delightful records, and it still is.
