Herbert von Karajan is recognised as one of the greatest conductors of the last century and during his career he produced a vast discography of what are still considered some of the greatest recordings ever made. This set brings together some of Karajan's greatest moments from his discography.

These titles have been remastered to the highest standard by the skilled engineers at Abbey Road using the Abbey Road Technology.
