Two new Blu-ray Audio releases of Legendary Karajan recordings!

To celebrate the legacy of Herbert von Karajan on the 30th year since his death. Deutsche Grammophon presents two of his most legendary recordings in High Definition.

Karajan’s Bruckner cycle with the Berliner Philharmoniker, recorded between January 1975 and January 1981 is now available, presented in 9CDs and Blu-ray Audio.

"Karajan’s Bruckner is a man who contemplates great issues, deeply pondered, and rigorously argued. They are readings in the valued older tradition where the route is known intimately in advance and where the vitality of the playing springs from the active collaboration between the music, players, and conductor at the point of performance.”
