Three SACD set performance by the Vienna Phiharmonic, conducted by Herbert Karajan
This three SACD set contains Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Herbert von Karajan, and the Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor, led by Helmut Froschauer. Sung in German.
The reissue of classical music masterpieces by ESOTERIC has attracted a lot of attention, both for its uncompromising commitment to recreating the original master sound, and for using hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) technology to improve sound quality. This series marks the first hybrid SACD release of historical recording selections that have been mainstays of the catalog since their initial release. These audio versions feature Esoteric's proprietary re-mastering process to achieve the highest level of sound quality.
Experience the legendary performance in this new Super Audio CD/CD format. Not only for new followers, but also for well experienced followers of these recorded materials. All will be equally impressed by the “soul” hidden within the notes, but never before found in previously released recordings in any format.
The criterion of re-mastering is to faithfully capture the quality of the original master. Esoteric’s flag ship D/A converters, model D-01VU, Rubidium master clock generator model Grandioso G1 and Esoteric Mexcel interconnect cables and power cords, were all used for this re-mastering session. This combination of highly advanced technology greatly contributed to capturing the high quality sound of the original master.
