Taking Karajan's unparalleled recorded legacy into the 21st century, Warner Classics paid tribute to the maestro on the 25th anniversary of his death July 16, with 20 of his most beloved albums remastered in high-definition quality for exclusive digital release.

At least half of the prolific conductor's discography was recorded for EMI. His partnership with the label spanned his entire career - from 1946 and the first collaborations with legendary producer Walter Legge, to 1984 just five years before Karajan's death. The albums feature his beloved Berliner Philharmoniker, which named him 'conductor for life', and the London-based Philharmonia founded by Legge, with whom the conductor produced some of his finest recordings.

Karajan's output for EMI was wide-ranging and forward-looking. In this rendition, he approaches the 20th century master-works of Bartók and Hindemith – revolutionary heralds of the avant-garde.

This treasure trove has been painstakingly remastered at London's Abbey Road Studios in 24-bit/96kHz from the original tapes, available for the first time as digital, high-definition releases via iTunes. Unlike many remastered classics, however, the Karajan collection has preserved the original vintage album artwork.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
