* 1967 ANGEL RECORDS * NEW/SEALED
Herbert von Karajan (German pronunciation: [ˈhɛɐbɛɐt fɔn ˈkaʁaˌjan]; born Heribert, Ritter von Karajan; 5 April 1908 – 16 July 1989) was an Austrian conductor. He was principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years. He is generally regarded as one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, and he was a dominant figure in European classical music from the mid-1950s until his death. Part of the reason for this was the large number of recordings he made and their prominence during his lifetime. By one estimate he was the top-selling classical music recording artist of all time, having sold an estimated 200 million records.
Karajan was the recipient of multiple honors and awards.
He became a Grand Officer of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic on 17 May 1960 and in 1961, he received the Austrian Medal for Science and Art.] He also received the Grand Merit Cross (Grosses Bundesverdienstkreuz) of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.
In 1977 he was awarded the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize. On 21 June 1978 he received the honorary degree of Doctor of Music from Oxford University. He was honored with Médaille de Vermeil from the Académie française in Paris, the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society in London, the Olympia Award of the Onassis Foundation and the UNESCO International Music Prize. He received two Gramophone Awards for recordings of Mahler's Ninth Symphony and the complete Parsifal recordings in 1981. He received the Eduard Rhein Ring of Honor from the German Eduard Rhein Foundation in 1984. In 2002, the Herbert von Karajan Music Prize was founded in his honour; in 2003 Anne-Sophie Mutter, who had made her debut with Karajan in 1977, became the first recipient of this award. He was voted into the inaugural Gramophone Hall of Fame in 2012. He has received the Picasso Medal from UNESCO. In 1997 the "Herbert von Karajan Whitsun Festival" was inaugurated at the Baden-Baden Festival Theatre. Karajan was an honorary citizen of Salzburg (1968), Berlin (1973), and Vienna (1978). (DSC)
A Note on Angel Records: The Angel trademark was first used in 1897 by the UK The Gramophone Co. Ltd.. It was used until 1909 when it was replaced by the His Master's Voice trademark. Later the Angel trademark was reborn as a sub-label by Electric & Musical Industries Ltd., which was born out of a merge between The Gramophone Co. Ltd. and The Columbia Graphophone Company Ltd.
It was established in the US in 1953 by EMI and absorbed into Capitol Records when that company was purchased by EMI.
Angel has classical, crossover, Broadway, world and folk artists and is also responsible for U.S. marketing for sister labels EMI Classics (UK) and Virgin Classics (France).
A 2005 reorganization put Angel Records, along with sister labels Blue Note, Manhattan & Metro Blue, in The Blue Note Label Group. Angel Records is in the Capitol Jazz & Classics Div., EMI Recorded Music (UK), with U.S. distribution by EMI Music Distribution. The recording-angel logo has been used by Angel Records, predecessors & affiliates since 1898.
NB: In 2005, the EMI Group launched a UK/European brand named the Angel Music Group. UK/EU issues post 2005 should be submitted there. Less
