Total Playing Time    1:48:54
"This, at last, is Karajan's great (Schöpfung>), robustly remastered ... the BPO brings its entire forces palpably to bear, horns far from diffident, woodwind soloists radiating bright and unexpected shafts of light ... this is Karajan at his most inspired: I challenge anyone to find a more literally breathtaking No. 27 Trio ..."
- Gramophone

"... this performance is gloriously memorable for the cultured beauty of the Berlin Philharmonic's playing and the mingled joy, drama and majesty of the conducting. Then there is the peerless solo lineup, led by Gundula Janowitz's etereal, light filled soprano and the irreplaceable Fritz Wunderlich, who died in a tragic fall before the recording was finished, but whose lyrical, ardently phrased account of the tenor arias is the most urgent single reason for acquiring this great recording."
- The Telegraph

Herbert von Karajan conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker on this classic 1966 release of Haydn's oratorio Die Schöpfung (The Creation), considered by many to be the composer's crowning achievement. The orchestra is joined by a superb cast of soloists, led by soprano Gundula Janowitz and tenor Fritz Wunderlich, who died in an accident while the album was still being recorded.

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!
