Claudio Abbado The Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon & Decca
THE LEGACY OF A LEGEND
For over four decades, the exceptional conductor Claudio Abbado recorded for Deutsche Grammophon, creating countless reference recordings that still stand out today - be it operas, contemporary works, Mahler and Beethoven symphonies or pieces by Mozart, Bach and Pergolesi. His releases with the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, London Symphony Orchestra or the Orchestra Mozart, which he founded, created a sensation and were frequently celebrated by the critics.
In honour of this extraordinary musical career, Deutsche Grammophon releases a 257-CD + 8-DVD edition of his complete recordings for the Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Philips labels, strictly limited to 2,650 pieces. The albums are presented in their original cover design. A total of 472 pages in 2 booklets list the production dates and detailed track listings. When opening the exquisite box, you will find the collection of albums presented as in a small bookshelf.
The edition is accompanied by a 112-page coffee-table book featuring former musicians and his longtime producers. In 12 essays, various important stages of his career, such as his time with the Berlin Philharmonic, are highlighted. Numerous rare photos, recording logs and a greeting from his four children round out this great limited edition.
