BEETHOVEN CD 1 – 5

Various (great) orchestras; first released 1976

Amazingly, each symphony is recorded with a different orchestra – and what orchestras! – London Symphony, Concertgebouw, Berliner Philharmoniker, Israel Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Orchestre de Paris, Wiener Philharmoniker, The Cleveland Orchestra, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra – culminating a Ninth with Kubelik’s “own” orchestra. Now issued as an integral set for the first time.

QUOTATIONS on the BEETHOVEN CYCLE

“A notable undertaking – sanely, humanly, at times gloriously realised. In an often troubled and divided world, its message quite literally crosses frontiers” – Richard Osborne (Gramophone)

The “Eroica” (with the Berlin Philharmonic): “A glorious reading, patient, articulate, and deeply expressive … a triumph for the orchestra – who play like gods, perfectly tuned to the music’s every nuance – and for Kubelik” (Gramophone)

SCHUMANN CD 6 – 7

Berliner Philharmoniker; 1963 – 1964

Kubelk’s first major project with the Berlin Phil. “It is a testimony to Kubelik’s human qualities that he was able to achieve in so short a time such a close rapport with the Berlin players”

QUOTATION on the SCHUMANN CYCLE

“Rafael Kubelik's Schumann Symphonies with the Berlin Philharmonic from 1963 – 64 are lucid, unaffected and full of life . . . This is still one of the most rewarding Schumann cycles . . . notable for its rhythmic energy and warmly sympathetic playing.” – Nigel Simeone (International Record Review)

DVOŘÁK CD 8 - 13

Berliner Philharmoniker; first released between 1966 and 1973

Naturally close to Kubelik’s heart, Kubelik’s Dvořák cycle has been a mainstay of the catalogue since it first appeared.

QUOTATION on the DVOŘÁK CYCLE

"Une intégrale qui domine la discographie, couronnée par une Septième Symphonie anxieuse, une Huitième vertigineuse et une Symphonie "Du Nouveau Monde" d'une densité rare.” – Le Monde de la Musique (Paris) [A complete cycle that dominates the catalogue, crowned by a Seventh full of angst, a giddily intoxicating Eighth, and ‘New World’ of rare density]

MAHLER CD 14 - 23

Symphonie orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks (Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) recorded between 1967 and 1971, with an international cast of soloists

The first Mahler cycle to be performed and recorded by a German orchestra. Kubelik passionately championed Mahler’s music when it was unfashionable to do so.

QUOTATIONS on the MAHLER CYCLE

“It has taken us all the wars and suffering to understand Mahler … Nobody else has dared to put so many human problems into their music, or tried to work out those problems in terms of music… I know of no composer, except Beethoven, who expressed such a love of mankind.” – Rafael Kubelik

“Le chef tchèque ressent dans ses fibres les origines bohémiennes de cette musique, qu'il interprète avec une absence de sophistication et une passion indémodables.” – Diapason [The Czech conductor feels the Bohemian origins of this music to his bones, and he performs it with a timeless lack of indulgence and passion]


One of the great conductors of the 20th century, Rafael Kubelik (1914 – 1996) would have been 100 years old on 29 June this year.

He made many recordings with Deutsche Grammophon, and is above all remembered for four symphony cycles, those of Beethoven, Schumann, Dvořák and Mahler (repertoire list attached here). They have been part of our catalogue since they were first issued on LP back in the 1960s and 1970s, and continue to form part of the backbone of Collectors Edition (Dvořák, Mahler) and Originals (Schumann); Beethoven is nearly all present on the 2-CD series.

For the first time, DG brings together these celebrated, iconic recordings in a handsome, limited-edition box, offered at an attractive price.

THE PACKAGING: A handsome box in the style of the John Eliot Gardiner Collection of 2013 (lift-off upper lid).

Great new liner notes by Kubelik expert Patrick Lambert.

Sung texts and translations included in booklet (Beethoven, Mahler).

LIMITED EDITION (LP-sized box)

28 CDs and 1 DVD - 'My Life, My Music' including 'The Last Interview' (German with optional subtitles in English and French)

Gunter Wand (January 7, 1912 - February 14, 2002) was one of the most important conductors of the 20th century. Together with the Kolner Rundfunk-Sinfonie-Orchester (WDR Sinfonieorchester) and then with the NDR Sinfonieorchester, whose principal conductor he was from 1982-1991. He produced outstanding recordings that retain their reference status to this day. His Bruckner cycle with the Cologne orchestra in particular mader Gunther Wand's work internationally known.

Wand was a keen advocate of absolute fidelity to the original, and was famous for his authentic interpretations, for the unrelenting precision of his rehearsal work and the high standards the set for recordings that were released on disc. This edition contains magnificent recordings personally authorised by Wand himself, such as the complete Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner and Schubert symphonies. The DVD "My Life, My Music" gives a comprehensive insight into the life and work of this great conductor.

All recordings remastered using 24-bit/96 kHz processing.

Haitink will be 85 on 4 March 2014, and this set presents his six complete symphonic cycles by cornerstone classical composers: Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. Originally recorded for Philips, the CDs are now smartly re-packaged in a collectable cube, with a substantial 160-page booklet including extensive essays in 3 languages (English, French, German) and includes essays by authoritative writers such as William Kinderman (Beethoven), Michael Kennedy (Mahler) and John Warrack (Schumann and Tchaikovsky).

Every single symphonic cycle is played by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, recently voted by Gramophone Magazine as ‘The Greatest Orchestra in the World’. Dutch-born Bernard Haitink made his debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra on 7 November 1956. From 1963 Haitink was Principal Conductor, a position he held for 25 years. An exclusive Philips artist for more than 30 years, Haitink remains fully active on the international concert scene. 2013/14 is the 60th season of his conducting career.

39 CD-box with recordings of Bruno Walter’s later years in a high quality LP-sized box.

32 page LP-sized booklet with elaborate liner notes in German and English.

This box set contains the complete symphonies of Beethoven and Brahms, the later symphonies of Mozart, symphonies of Mahler and Bruckner, CDs with rehearsals and many more.

The German born conductor Bruno Walter (1876-1962) was known primarily for his interpretations of the Viennese school. Though out of step with 20th century trends he was such a fine musician that he became a major figure - filling the wide gulf between the extremes of his day - Arturo Toscanini and Wilhelm Furtwängler.

He was an associate of Gustav Mahler and a long and faithful proponent and interpreter of Mahler's music.

He conducted the world premieres of “Das Lied von der Erde” (1911) and the “Symphony No. 9” (1912).

In 1925, he helped institute the Salzburg Festival and was named musical director of the Berlin Staatsoper. In 1929, Walter had a falling out with the Berlin opera management and departed to succeed Wilhelm Furtwängler at the Leipzig Gewandhaus.

In 1933 he left Germany when the Nazis came to power and went to Austria and from there in 1938 to France. Walter finally left Europe in 1939 and settled in the United States where he already had a strong following. He built up a reputation as a respected conductor under whom musicians enjoyed working. Amongst other orchestras, he frequently conducted the New York Philharmonic.

In 1957 a West Coast recording ensemble named Columbia Symphony Orchestra was specially put together for Walter to produce new recordings of famous works by Bruckner and Mahler in stereo.
