180g Vinyl 8LP Box Set!

Mastered From Original ATP Files!


It is already a landmark in the history of recorded music and one of the crown jewels in Deutsche Grammophon's catalog, but this special edition of Herbert von Karajan’s 1963 Beethoven Symphony Cycle is a particularly thrilling part of the DG120 celebrations. Only 1,200 of this 8LP set will be manufactured, presented in a luxury black linen box with artwork specially commissioned from artist Gregor Hildebrandt, who uses fragments of pre-recorded cassette tape as raw material in his creative process. Pressed on 180gram vinyl by OPTIMAL and mastered from original ATP files.

Karajan recorded the Complete Symphonies of Beethoven no fewer than 4 times for DG, but his first recording, made in 1963, was financially the most daring, artistically the most radical, and commercially the most successful. It was estimated that over 100,000 boxes would have to be sold if Deutsche Grammophon's gargantuan 1.5 million Deutschmark investment was to be recouped. The head of a rival company predicted that Deutsche Grammophon was heading for "a colossal financial catastrophe". By 1973 nearly one million sets had been sold, ten times the original breakeven estimate. 50 years on from its original launch, the set remains the best-selling Beethoven cycle of all time. The 1963 Berlin set dazzled like no other, aided in no small measure by the clean, clear, daringly "lit" recordings made in Berlin's Jesus-Christus-Kirche by the young Günter Hermanns whose debut as Karajan's principal recording engineer this was. Critics and the record-buying public were enthused above all by the urgency and beauty of the music-making and by a fierce sense of joy which reached its apogee in a thrillingly played and eloquently sung account of the finale of the epic Ninth Symphony.
