Overview

A limited edition book that includes six CDs, State of the Art presents the first full-length history of the legendary Yellow Label. With unprecedented access to Deutsche Grammophon's archives and interviews with artists, historians, producers, and engineers, it is a treasure trove of memorabilia, stories, and photographs that are assembled in a lavish book recounting 111 years of DG's recordings. At over 200 pages, and including the six CDs featured in the 111 Classic Tracks collection, this is easily the most lavish history of a record label produced in quite some time.

State of the Art traces the progress of the label from its founding in 1898 up to the present day and includes features on such artists as Karajan, Böhm, Abbado, Boulez, Domingo, The Emerson String Quartet, Mutter, Fischer-Dieskau, Pollini, Pires, and many others. For the expert and the casual fan alike, State of the Art is the definitive chronicle of an essential classical music institution.
