Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben (“A Hero’s Life”) (1959) was Karajan’s very first recording as the Berlin Philharmonic’s music director, and his first post-war recording for Deutsche Grammophon. It marked the beginning of a long-lasting partnership and remains a reference Strauss recording.

The most famous conductor of his age, Karajan released over 300 albums for Deutsche Grammophon and enjoyed a long a fruitful partnership with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

“The burnished brilliance of the playing, the finely-spun lines and perfectly sculpted dramatic climaxes - and Michael Schwalbe's violin solos - altogether shows one of the greatest Straussian teams at its peak.” - BBC Music Magazine

Original tapes remastered by EBS and pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl
