Notes & Reviews:

A legend in his lifetime for his interpretations of Beethoven, Herbert von Karajan recorded a large swathe of the composer’s oeuvre. On this specially priced 13-CD box set Karajan's complete Beethoven repertoire recorded by Deutsche Grammophon is presented for the first time – comprising his final, digital recordings of the Symphonies, the Piano Concertos (with Christoph Eschenbach and Alexis Weissenberg, nos. 2 - 5 specially licensed), Violin Concerto (Anne-Sophie Mutter) and Triple Concerto (with Mutter, Yo Yo Ma and Mark Zeltser), the Missa Solemnis, Overtures, Egmont Music, Wellington’s Victory, and a host of rarities, including the Grosse Fuge (arranged for orchestra), restored to the catalogue.
The packaging of this set is a capbox with 36-page booklet with new essay by Karajan biographer Richard Osborne.
To realise this set, Alexis Weissenberg’s recordings of the Piano Concertos nos. 2 – 5 have been licensed from EMI.
