Herbert von Karajan & Berliner Philharmoniker: Mahler: Symphony No. 5 (Original Source Series #1 SECOND EDITION) 2LP

Star conductor Carlos Kleiber only left a few recordings, but these are all cult classics. This is also true of his recording of Beethoven's 7th Symphony with the Vienna Philharmonic, which is marked by the great master conductor's intellectual precision, passion and perfectionism. It is considered one of the most important interpretations of the much-performed work.

Marking their 125th anniversary, Deutsche Grammophon is launching a new and very special audiophile series on vinyl. The Original Source Series = no copy used, no extra devices in the signal pass, no digital sound processing at all; more clarity, more detail and far less noise; pure analog. Produced on virgin 180-gram vinyl by Optimal, these limited and numbered releases will be issued in deluxe gatefold editions featuring the original artwork and liner notes.
