Two studio recordings from 1969 and a live 1970 performance of Symphony No. 28 filmed in the Vienna Musikvereinsalle portray a Mozart conductor of immense gifts and an orchestra of infinite refinement. A DVD bonus is the hour-long film from 1994, I Remember chronicling Böhm's life and career and showing him in rehearsal for Strauss's Don Juan and Mozart's Don Giovanni.
"Böhm is as excellent a Mozart conductor as Karajan, playing the quick movements in the most lively manner … and keeping all the andantes flowing…. He keeps all his minuets light and bouncy."—Gramophone
