Esoteric have produced a remarkable transfer that preserves beautifully the hall sound, spatial information and detail. The brass and mass strings have excellent detail, revealing a lot of subtle harmonies and variation – a boon for anything Wagner. This contributes to an overall impression of sophistication and restraint and goes perfectly with Karajan’s Wagner.

In comparison with other SACDs in the Esoteric reissue program, I find the sound to be equally remarkable in quality and character to the the finest recordings available of – the highest demonstration quality recordings to start with and will better the present recording on any format.

For the source material used in the remastering, the packaging states (in Japanese) “remastered from original analog master tapes”. Based solely on the final merits Esoteric has splendidly succeeded. A must-have!
