Notes & Reviews:

Deutsche Grammophon's No. 1 Catalogue Priority in 2014 is HERBERT VON KARAJAN. We celebrate his 50 years as a DG artist, 25 years after his death (16 July 1989).

25 years after his death HERBERT von KARAJAN continues to embody the ideals of the art of conducting. He remains the most iconic conductor of the 20th century, the benchmark by which all others are judged.

Karajan Strauss is a double anniversary treat for the aficionados. As it's the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss in June 2014, we've combined the great conductor and the great composer in an LP-sized deluxe set that will set future standards.
