Karajan's 1959 Strauss recordings
Nice remaster of an old favourite!
Richard Strauss - Don Juan / Death And Transfiguration - Vienna Philharmonic - Herbert von Karajan (Pure DSD)
This is excellent sound recording!
Great music (obviously!), great performance and super remastering.
Good, not necessarily great
Yes, we all know HvK was a dab hand with Richard Strauss. These are, indeed fine (early) performances with the VPO. However, the Decca sound is a bit constricted on this occasion - not their best. And there is a LOT of great competition in this repertoire.
A real treat for Richard Strauss music lovers! The performance is outstanding and the sound glorious.
