Gundula Janowitz, Herbert von Karajan & Berliner Philharmoniker: R. Strauss: Tod und Verklärung / Vier letzte Lieder LP


Ships on: July 22, 2024

The recordings of Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic are legendary - as is the interpretation of Richard Strauss's tone poem "Death and Transfiguration" and his "Four Last Songs", a reference recording with the singular soprano Gundula Janowitz, released in 1974. Since David Bowie's confession that this was one of his 25 favorite records, it even achieved cult status far beyond the borders of classical music.

The Original Source is a new series of celebrated albums reissued on vinyl. The renowned Berlin-based Emil Berliner Studios are remastering 4-track recordings from the 1970s, using their own cutting-edge and 100% pure analogue techniques (AAA) to create versions of the highest possible audio quality. More clarity, more details and a better frequency response, the highest possible audiophile quality which gives listeners the chance to enjoy this repertoire like never before.
