EMI Great Artists of the Century series
An artist-based series celebrating many of EMI's greatest artists
The mid-price series Great Artists of the Century celebrates the art and artistry of a roster of the most distinguished musicians of the 20th century and of the first decade of the 21st century.
Each release in Great Artists of the Century focuses on one eminent musician. The CD offers a programme of important EMI recordings chosen to demonstrate the qualities and achievements of the featured artist, and major works in notable performances taken from EMI's vast and unique catalogue of great recordings.
The lavish packaging of Great Artists of the Century includes a striking cover photograph plus a facsimile of the artist's signature and new accounts of the artists' lives and assessments of their achievements by leading writers. The superb recordings have been transferred and, where appropriate, newly remastered from the original source materials (78s and tapes) by EMI's renowned team of engineers at Abbey Road Studios.
