Product description

The Karajan Official Remastered Edition comprises 13 box sets containing official remasterings of the finest recordings the Austrian conductor made for EMI between 1946 and 1984, which are now a jewel of the Warner Classics catalog. This 7-CD box presents orchestral works by composers including Debussy, Ravel, Bizet, Berlioz, Franck, Puccini, Dvorak, Smetana and Tchaikovsky played by the Berlin Philharmonic and the Orchestre de Paris.brbrFor many, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) - hailed early in his career as 'Das Wunder Karajan' (The Karajan Miracle) and known in the early 1960s as 'the music director of Europe' - remains the ultimate embodiment of the maestro. The release of the Karajan Official Remastered Edition over the first half of 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the conductor's death in July 1989 at the age of 81.brbrHe was closely associated with EMI for the majority of his recording career (specifically from 1946 to 1960 and then again from 1969 to 1984). EMI's legendary producer Walter Legge sought him out in Vienna just after World War II and the long relationship that ensued embraced recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic, the Philharmonia (the orchestra founded by Legge), the Berlin Philharmonic (of which Karajan became 'conductor for life' in 1955), La Scala, Milan, and the Orchestre de Paris.brbrCD ListingbrCD 1: Debussy-La Mer; Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune; Ravel-Bolero; Alborada del Gracioso; La ValsebrCD 2: Ravel-Rapsodie Espagnole; Le Tombeau de Couperin; Bizet-L'Arlésienne, Suite No. 2; Chabrier-Espaa-Rapsodie; Gounod-Faust: Ballet MusicbrCD 3: Berlioz-La Damnation de Faust; Franck-Symphony in D Minor; Puccini-Intermezzi from Suor Angelica and Manon LescautbrCD 4: Dvorak-Symphonies Nos. 8 & 9brCD 5: Smetana-Ma Vlást; Dvorak-Slavonic Dance No. 8 in G Minor; Bartok-Concerto for OrchestrabrCD 6: Tchaikovsky-Symphonies Nos. 4 & 5brCD 7: Tchaikovsky-Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6
