“The International Classical Music Award” 2024

It is extremely satisfying for us at the Karajan Institute when formerly less-known treasures from the maestro’s work are presented and perceived today. The Lucerne Festival has always been a very important event for Karajan over 40 years between 1948 – 1988. Last year, the Festival has evaluated the radio recordings that have been made of Karajan’s concerts in the 1950s. With the support from our institute rare encounters of Karajan and soloists like Clara Haskil, Nathan Milstein, Robert Casadesus and Geza Anda have been published in a precious edition by the label audite. The renowned record magazine Gramophone wrote: “It’s an intriguing hatch of musically worthwhile live Karajan discoveries, very well transferred from clean analogue sources. Here’s hoping for more of the same.”

We are very proud that the box “Herbert von Karajan – the Early Lucerne Years” has recently been honoured as the “best historical recording” at the prestigious International Classical Music Awards 2024 in Valencia. On this photo, our CEO Matthias Röder is speaking on behalf of the institute.
