Herbert von Karajan conducts Strauss's Also sprach Zarathustra Berliner Philharmoniker

About

In 1968, 2001: A Space Odyssey's unforgettable opening scene made Richard Strauss’s symphonic poem Also sprach Zarathustra ("Thus spoke Zarathustra") one of the best-known pieces of classical music ever. Filmmaker Stanley Kubrick chose the recording of Karajan with the Wiener Philharmoniker, but this performance from 1987—part of the 750th anniversary celebration of Berlin’s founding—features Karajan’s other preferred artistic partner, the Berliner Philharmoniker. Monumental and lyric, the magnificent symphonic poem pays tribute to Nietzsche's eponymous work that explores human nature and existence.
