Herbert von Karajan conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra for this recording of pieces by Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg and Anton Webern. Recorded 1972-1974 in Berlin.

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.


  • Super High Material Super Audio CD
  • SHM-SACD Stereo SACD Layer
  • Single-Layer Stereo SHM-SACD, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file
  • Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection
  • Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes
  • This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player! It will NOT play on conventional CD Players!
