Our drawing/giveaways for August will be for two very special Deutsche Grammophon collections of The Complete Analog Recordings of conductor Herbert Von Karajan in the music of Richard Strauss, remastered at 96K/24-bit. This limited edition numbered set consists of 11 standard CDs plus a Pure Audio Blu-ray. Each CD runs nearly an hour and the Blu-ray is five and quarter hours! Included is a complete 1960 performance of Der Rosenkavalier, as well as classics such as A Hero’s Life, Till Eulenspiegel, Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration, Don Quixote, Also sprach Zarathustra, and the horn concerti. The sets come with an 80-page book including the opera libretto in German and English.
All you need do to be considered as one of the two winners (plus having a Blu-ray deck and being into classical) to be selected is to register using our simple form this month. (Those who don’t completely fill out the form will not be considered for the drawing.) The three lucky winners will be listed on our Editorial Page next month, where this month you’ll find more details on this drawing.
