Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) is one of the most legendary conductors of all time. His legacy is well-preserved on record as he made many recordings thru his career.
This year Deutsche Grammophon released a 70 CDs box set with the complete opera recordings by Karajan on Deutsche Grammophon and Decca entitled “Karajan: The Opera Recordings“.
This box set features two opera recordings with Pavarotti:
- Puccini: La Bohème with the Berliner Philharmoniker (recorded in 1972)
- Puccini: Madama Butterfly with the Wiener Philharmoniker (recorded in 1974)
Both recordings are available separately on Decca CD, download and streaming.
If you want to own a collection of great opera recordings then this lavish box set might be just what you need. See details in the video and the illustration below.
