About

As part of our continuing Karajan product suite in 2014, we are releasing a new Karajan Christmas album, combining for the first time excerpts from the Maestro’s famous 'Baroque Christmas concertos' CD with the celebrated Christmas disc he recorded with the great American soprano Leontyne Price on Decca in 1961, along with several other tracks with a Christmas feel.

Produced in an attractive digipack, with evocative photos from Karajan’s snowy home in Anif, near Salzburg, this album rounds off the Karajan year in appropriately festive tones.
