Notes & Reviews:

The Herbert von Karajan Collection comprises thirteen box sets containing official remasterings of the finest recordings the Austrian conductor made for EMI from 1946-84, now jewels of the Warner Classics catalog. He was closely associated with EMI for the majority of his recording career (specifically from 1946-60 and then again from 1969-84). This 5-CD set unites three central choral masterpieces of the Austro-German tradition, recorded in Berlin in the 1970s, Haydn's Die Jahreszeiten, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Brahms's German Requiem, and features soloists drawn from Karajan's 'inner circle' of singers, including Gundula Janowitz, Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Agnes Baltsa, Walter Berry and José van Dam.
