Product Information

Karajan’s monumental Ring cycle, which he recorded together with the Berlin Philharmonic and a stunning cast of singers is made available again on a single blu-ray audio disc in high resolution sound quality.

For his legendary recording, Karajan assembled a world-class cast of singers who were able to convey his vision – lyrically and with a clear and vivid declamation of the text.  This cycle is very different from others: a more other-worldly approach that is all about beauty, lyricism, and structure. We hear a rich, colourful, transparent, in many moments almost chamber music-like orchestral sound that is still unrivalled today.

The blu-ray disc is issued as a digipack with a 48-page booklet, essays in English and German by Karajan biographer Richard Osborne and rare artist photos from the recording sessions and rehearsals for the live Salzburg performances. The HD remastering was made by the experts of Emil Berliner Studios and is also available digitally.

Remastered at 24 bit / 96 kHz
