Gundula Janowitz's transcendental performance of Strauss's Four Last Songs, timed around her 80th birthday. Recorded Nov 1972-Jan 1973 at the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin, the performance by Janowitz with the Berliner Philharmoniker was conducted by Herbert von Karajan. Mastered from original sources and pressed on 180g heavy-weight vinyl. Original jackets and notes.

"Janowitz’s performance has been described as transcendental. It aches with love for a life that is quietly fading. I know of no other piece of music, nor any performance, which moves me quite like this." - DAVID BOWIE
