Limited Edition 14-CD Box Set, The Comprehensive Edition From Deutsche Grammophon Including Previously Unreleased Material From A Legendary And Much-Loved Singer!
Marking the 80th birthday of Gundula Janowitz in August 2017, this limited edition box set celebrates her clear and honest soprano voice through a selection of her opera, oratorio and Lieder recordings. The favourite lyric soprano of Herbert von Karajan, Janowitz set the standard for sopranos with her legendary recordings of Mozart and R. Strauss which are still unsurpassed in the catalogue.
"[The] great honesty, vulnerability and beauty … noble sense of musicality, luminosity and truth in her lustrous sound are... unparalleled" - Elizabeth Watts
"Janowitz characterises with real feeling and a wide palette of vocal colours … one of the finest Mozart and Strauss singers of the last four decades of the 20th century" - Gramophone
"Even among the remarkable number of first-rate recordings of Richard Strauss' "Four last songs" … Gundula Janowitz still excels. Janowitz bewitches and enchants like no other as she interweaves her soprano line around Karajan's sublimely paced and immaculately played orchestral accompaniment" - BBC Music Magazine
