I think Kamu handles things a bit better, but I don't think I can recommend it if you have a performance you really love.
The Karajan 4,5,6,7 are the same that received rosette
in Penguin Guide so critics love them, but I really don't like them much. Karajan did much different style for early 1980's EMI sessions that sound much different and better to me.
I like the Kamu 1,2,3 and he is defintely closer in style to the Maazel, but sound DG sound quality for Kamu is not in the same class as London for Maazel.
