This box contains five splendid productions of Sergiu Celibidache (28 June1912 – 14. August 1996) for his 100th Anniversary.
He was one of the most charismatic, talented and fascinating conductors of all time; his profound knowledge of instrumental frequencies and acoustic science made him a genius of sound.
The five DVD-titles in this magnificent box-set present him conducting some of the most beloved pieces in the world, in concert and in valuable, rarely-seen rehearsal footage. He is joined by Daniel Barenboim (who dubbed him ‘one of the greatest musicians I ever encountered’), Hans Kalafusz, the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR, and his beloved Münchner Philharmoniker, in a illuminating and moving set of performances.
Highly acclaimed, fascinating and dazzling productions - A real must-have!

“admirers will find much to interest them...It’s notable for the richness of Celibidache’s verbal pointers...the longish Strauss rehearsal will merit a place on your shelf. It is an interesting character study - of control, relaxation, terseness and more floridly encouraging praise. Psychologically it’s a rewarding half an hour plus - and the performance shows the translation of those ideas and ideals in fine fashion.”
