Overview

Sir Colin Davis: The Complete RCA Legacy

Sir Colin Davis: The RCA Legacy is a 51-CD box set from Sony Masterworks that consists of all of the recordings he made for RCA Victor between 1988 and 2000, and many are ranked among his greatest performances. Davis worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and his communication with these orchestras yielded extraordinary interpretations of classics by Beethoven, Brahms, Mahler, Wagner, Verdi, and most significantly, Berlioz, Sibelius, and Mozart, the three composers whose music he understood on the deepest levels. Whether in performances of opera or orchestral repertoire, Davis was always faithful to the spirit of the music, and while his readings were mainstream for their time, with little concern for period practice, they met the highest standards and in many cases raised the bar for other orchestras.
