A limited-edition 50-CD set of legendary recordings celebrating the world-renowned DECCA sound.

Classic-status pioneering stereo recordings from the past 55 years and starring a galaxy of internationally-acclaimed artistic talent.

Each CD is presented in a sleeve with original cover art.

Where an original release may have been of short duration due to limitations of the LP a bonus work featuring the same artists has been added.

A 200-page booklet documents the development of stereo recording as it developed in the 1950s through to modern digital recordings; there is an article on Decca artists and repertory with particular reference to the artists featured in the set.

Full recording information on each disc is included and there are numerous photographs.

“In opera and elsewhere Decca really did lead the way through much of the second half of the twentieth century and this new box set celebrates and demonstrates that through a tremendous range of terrific recordings.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 17th October 2011

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Recorded 19th August 1989 (stereo, analogue)


James Levine left his mark not only on the operatic life of the Salzburg Festival but also on its concerts, in particular its Mahler renaissance, culminating in the present performance of the ‘Resurrection’ Symphony, which is magnificently sung by chorus and soloists and superbly played by the Vienna Phil.

“Christa Ludwig, Kathleen Battle and the Vienna State Opera Chorus had no difficulty in achieving the same high level as that by Levine and his orchestra, we were witness to a Mahler experience that will remain with us for a very long time.” Volker Boser, Münchner Abendzeitung 21/8/1989

“Levine's 1989 Salzburg account would seem to have been fashioned with the delicate sensibilities of the glamorous festival audience in mind. It's a reading which dutifully pushes most of the right buttons but never the music's extremes. Everything is kept on a pretty even keel...Of course, the Vienna strings offer an echt Viennese account of the Andante” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'

Mahler: Symphony No. 2 'Resurrection'


Christiane Oelze (soprano) & Sarah Connolly (alto)

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, MDR Rundfunkchor, Berliner Rundfunkchor & GewandhausChor, Riccardo Chailly

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the oldest concert orchestra in the world, and their Music Director Riccardo Chailly have already acquired legendary status – glorious reviews and many awards for their recordings testifying to their continuing success. At Leipzig’s International Mahler Festival, to mark the centenary of Mahler’s death, they performed his monumental Second Symphony in the Gewandhaus – together with two marvellous soloists and choral forces quite beyond compare. About the final movement the composer said: “The increasing tension, working up to the final climax, is so tremendous that I don’t know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it.”

“[Chailly] has turned wiry Gewandhaus strings into muscular proponents; the first real moment of magic is when he gives the cor anglais space to etch the Alpine idyll at the heart of the first movement...Chailly's facial expressions rightly express his sheer sense of visceral enjoyment...And Sarah Connolly's part in the proceedings is surprisingly intense” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“this one is something special. The acoustic of Leipzig's Gewandhaus hall is a star in itself: the offstage horn and trumpet fanfares sound as thrilling as the orchestra's playing, itself near-fabulous from start to finish...[Chailly's] conducting charts a wonderfully sure path through Mahler's epic conception. And in the 'Urlicht' movement Sarah Connolly's singing, like the orchestra's playing, is as moving and beautiful as it's possible to imagine.” Classic FM Magazine, February 2012 *****

“these are red-blooded performances. The Italian conductor has long been a respected Mahlerian, capable of welding the symphonies’ huge structures and quixotic moods into a coherent musical statement...Sarah Connolly deliver[s] a radiant “Urlicht”” Financial Times, 15th October 2011 ****

“Chailly's Resurrection is unashamedly mainstream, more straightforward than Bernstein's, sunnier and more muscular than Abbado's, with forthright contributions from harp and percussion...the excellent Sarah Connolly provides a lovely, intimate reading of the 'Urlicht' and there is no lack of tension as the epic finale crashes in...Christane Oelze is outstanding too, at once bright and warm.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

Mahler: Symphony No. 8 in E flat major 'Symphony of a Thousand'

Mahler: Symphony No. 8 in E flat major 'Symphony of a Thousand'


Erika Sunnegårdh (soprano), Ricarda Merbeth (soprano), Christiane Oelze (soprano), Lioba Braun (alto), Gerhild Romberger (alto), Stephen Gould (tenor), Dietrich Henschel (baritone) & Georg Zeppenfeld (bass)

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Riccardo Chailly

Mahler’s Eighth Symphony is arguably the grandest and most ambitious piece of symphonic music ever written. The composer himself regarded it as his opus summum, and an incredible number of participants at the hugely successful Munich première in 1910 earned it the nickname “Symphony of a Thousand”. At Leipzig’s International Mahler Festival 2011, Riccardo Chailly commanded almost 500 musicians, and the overwhelming result of their joint effort inspired the Leipzig-based and internationally renowned artist Neo Rauch to the painting for the cover of this DVD.

“these are red-blooded performances. The Italian conductor has long been a respected Mahlerian, capable of welding the symphonies’ huge structures and quixotic moods into a coherent musical statement...They also convey the physical thrill of the “live” experience, with Erika Sunnegardh risking all in the high soprano lines” Financial Times, 15th October 2011 ****

“How good to see Riccardo Chailly so radiant at the end of this great event. It's an exhilaration he earns through sheer work as well as injecting the adrenalin at most of the right moments...Chailly holds the attention between movements and makes you realise how many soloists within the orchestra have to sing, too. His leader, the superb Sebastian Breuninger, assists him between blazes...Chailly's rendering leads the field on DVD.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ****

“Michael Beyer’s direction on this Accentus DVD is unobtrusive in the best possible way...The clarity and force of the choral sound is remarkable, especially that of the cheerful-looking GewandhausKinderchoir. You’ll reach the end of Part One spiritually transfigured...It’s an overwhelmingly affirmative experience, and Chailly brings out the joy as well as the solemnity.” The Arts Desk, 5th November 2011

“In exchanging ceremonial pomp and adrenaline-rush for an unforced, unmannered, surprisingly lyrical approach, Chailly unearths a wealth of rarely heard contrapuntal detail and secures a rare unanimity of response. The solo singers and here purely local choral forces are on the same exalted level as his venerable band whose dark transparency and unique, late-Romantic sound are, he believes, perfect for these scores.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012
