"The Boston Symphony has never sounded better" wrote Stereo Review in 1971, and another critique stated that "when listening it turns out to be a most exquisite interpretation played with passion and emotion".

Such was the experts' opinion on the Boston Symphony Orchestra's Zarathustra under the direction of William Steinberg.

Strauss's Zarathustra is not only a "philosophy in notes", but also a work of systematically designed symphonic music, furnished with all of the necessary climaxes and contrasts, in which Richard Strauss demonstrates the orchestral tonal palette with virtuosity.

The recordings are now available in unprecedented sound quality. The original analogue recordings from the 24th March 1972 (Symphony Hall, Boston) form the basis of Christoph Stickel's unobtrusive "refurbishing" which aims to avoid any artistic intervention. You, the valued listener, will be transported back into the sound engineer's chair at the time of recording.
