Leonard Bernstein & Wiener Philharmoniker
• Quadraphonic audio was the earliest consumer product recorded and presented in surround sound. Deutsche Grammophon was one of a few labels who, in the 1970s, decided to embrace Quadrophonic recording
• Though quadrophonic releases were a commercial failure at the time they were issued – largely due to the high production costs and the costs of the playback equipment – present-day technology allows us to return to the original tapes and use the Blu-ray Audio format to present these recordings in high definition surround mixes.
• The remastering and remixing has been done in 24 bit / 192 kHz in 5.0 surround by Polyhymnia in the Netherlands.
• 5CDs + 1 Blu-ray Audio disc presenting Bernstein’s legendary Beethoven cycle with the Wiener Philharmoniker
