Overview

Presented on 54 CDs, this set of Decca's acclaimed analogue recordings is a reissue of historical significance because it documents the label's innovations in audio reproduction. The development of full frequency range recording and stereophonic sound (known as ffss) made Decca a world leader in classical recordings, and the pre-digital recordings from the 1950s, '60s, and '70s have been specially remastered for this CD collection. Each album appears with its original cover art, and the variety of music ranges from great symphonies and other orchestral masterpieces to opera, as well as chamber and keyboard music, performed by the great artists on Decca's roster, including Antal Doráti, Georg Solti, Pierre Monteux, Josef Krips, Willi Boskovsky, and Herbert von Karajan, among many others.
