HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Requiem (Karajan)

front_small_boxsetPay attention: completely re-ripped, for Joe, with the new Black Bird and in 24/192
A single word: “majesty” and a second word: “tenderness”, in front of death and in the look of God … This is what we hear here, much better than in most other versions. After studying several Mozart-Requiem performances I realized that this one is the most inspired and the closest to the Mozart rithym and sensibility. Better performed even than others directed also by Herbert v. Karajan. You can listen to other Mozart-Requiem versions, but once you listen to this one, you will not want another!

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Richard Strauss – Death And Transfiguration/Four Last Songs (Karajan/Janowitz)

front_small_boxsetGundula Janowitz had a very beautiful voice that critics like to describe as “creamy,” whatever that means. Strauss had a life-long love affair with the soprano voice. He even married one–not just the voice, the whole woman, of course. His Four Last Songs constitute his dying tribute, and they are probably the most hedonistically gorgeous vocal works in existence. Herbert vo Karajan was a Strauss specialist, as was Janowitz, and together they contrive to perform the songs about as perfectly as they ever have been.

HD-Vinyls 24/96 (DGG) Gustav Mahler – Symphony No. 5 / Kindertotenlieder (Ludwig/Karajan)

front_small_boxset
Herbert von Karajan came to Mahler in a round-about way. His affinity with Richard Strauss and Anton Bruckner was life-long. Mahler he came to only after exploring the Second Viennese School of Schoenberg, Berg and Webern. Released in the mid-seventies this, his first Mahler recording is extraordinary. It is the only Mahler Symphony recorded by Karajan abd the BPO in the Jesus Christus Kirche and not in the Berlin Philharmonie. This brings a presence and warmth to the recorded sound not achieved by the engineers until much later in the Philharmonie.
