About

The Karajan Official Remastered Edition comprises 13 box sets containing official remasterings of the finest recordings the Austrian conductor made for EMI between 1946 and 1984, and which are now a jewel of the Warner Classics catalogue.

For many, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) – hailed early in his career as ‘Das Wunder Karajan’ (The Karajan Miracle) and known in the early 1960s as ‘the music director of Europe’ – remains the ultimate embodiment of the maestro. The release of the Karajan Official Remastered Edition over the first half of 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the conductor’s death in July 1989, at the age of 81.

This set unites three central choral masterpieces of the Austro-German tradition, recorded in Berlin in the 1970s and featuring soloists drawn from Karajan’s ‘inner circle’ of singers, such as Gundula Janowitz, Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Agnes Baltsa and José van Dam.
