About

Karajan’s legendary 1975-77 Beethoven symphony cycle, remastered for the first time in DOLBY ATMOS by Emil Berliner Studios, allowing the most extraordinary realism ever heard outside of a ‘live’ performance.

Two Blu-ray Audio discs presenting the complete cycle in three new remasterings:
- Dolby Atmos at 24bit/48kHz
- Stereo 2.0 at 24bit/192kHz
- Surround 5.1 at 24bit/192KHz

Included are two rare interviews with Herbert von Karjan from the original 1970s vinyl box (both mono):
- Das Interview: Herbert von Karajan im Gespräch mit Joachim Kaiser
- Karajan in conversation with Richard Osborne

Digipack with 40pp booklet in English and German presenting the original liner notes from Richard Osborne, Franz Endler and Stefan Kunze, and many rare pictures of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Grammy Award Winning Cycle: Winner of “Best Orchestral Performance” (1978); Nominated for “Classical Album of the
Year” (1978).

“Karajan made three recordings of the mighty Ninth Symphony for DG of which this 1977 take is the finest. Tonal beauty and sophistication go hand in hand with bracing physicality to make this one of the most compelling Ninths ever recorded ... Awesome tuttis underpinned by visceral timpani alternate with melt-in-the-mouth string textures throughout, making this an unforgettable experience.” – Classic FM, 2007

“Sets new standards of orchestral playing.”
– Gramophone

“Beethoven is in no way déjà vu to Karajan, as this set gloriously proves.” – Gramophone
