Herbert von Karajan 1980s Orchestral Recordings Box Set Limited Edition 78 Discs

Stock Status: Sold Out
Sorry, this item is currently out of stock!

Between 1980 and his death in 1989, Herbert von Karajan recorded the incredible amount of 78 CDs worth of orchestral and choral music for DGG. In the final decade of his creative life, he made quintessential recordings of major works he had not recorded before: Nielsens Symphony No. 4 The Inextinguishable and Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony. Among the highpoints of Karajans late years is the major part of his collaboration with Anne-Sophie Mutter, the wunderkind Karajan discovered in the late 1970s and mentored throughout the 1980s. The almost complete recordings of Richard Strauss great symphonic poems radically re-thought and played like you never heard them before under the great maestros baton. Massive renderings of Mozarts and Verdis Requiems stand next to Karajans personal requiems: The famous 1987 New Years Concert and the farewell recordings of Bruckner 7 and Bruckner 8, where you can still experience how Karajan, struggling with his fading health, infused the music with contemplations about life and death. Pure musical magic, as powerful as it was 25 years ago!
