This 6-CD set celebrates the work of Sir Colin Davis (1927 – 2013) with the Staatskapelle Dresden for whom he was Conductor Laureate.

“Sir Colin was an incredibly kind and utterly unpretentious man who won the hearts of all who experienced him through his warmth of soul. A rarely encountered artistic bond existed between him and the Staatskapelle. For the Staatskapelle Dresden the death of Sir Colin signifies not only the death of their revered Conductor Laureate but the loss of a unique friend. We shall never forget him.” Christian Thielemann, Principal Conductor of the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden
