Overview

The Grosses Festspielhaus in Salzburg has been the scene of countless memorable musical events -- operas, concerts, and recitals -- for 50 years. Here is a unique chance to celebrate the glories of this distinguished era. In an exceptional collaboration with the Salzburg festival, Deutsche Grammophon has prepared this 25-CD box set -- 5 complete operas, 10 concerts, and 2 recitals -- featuring many of the world's greatest artists in classic recordings and others that are appearing on CD for the first time.

The concerts (five of which are first-time releases) are with Abbado, Bernstein, Bohm, Boulez, Karajan, Levine, Mehta, Muti, and Solti. Soloists include Anne-Sophie Mutter and Jessye Norman. The Vienna Philharmonic features prominently, while individual concerts highlight the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. The recitals include two exceptional concerts with Alfred Brendel (first release) and the Martha Argerich/Nelson Freire duo-concert from 2009. The set includes new liner notes in English, German, and French and photos of the operas and artists in a 72--page booklet. From the Label
