This 3-CD set couples together a selection of some of the more popular classics recorded by the great German conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler. Furtwängler was born 125 years ago in 1886 and this birthday tribute comes as a timely reminder of his genius. He was, without doubt, one of the truly great musical interpreters of the 20th century and we are fortunate indeed that he was working at a time when EMI were able to capture on record his work both in the studio and on the concert platform.

All the recordings were made with the Vienna Philharmonic in the late 1940s and early '50s, during the final years of the conductor's career. The first disc in the set contains three popular symphonies by composers who were close to Furtwängler's heart. The other two CDs comprise a selection of well-known shorter works, making this the ideal means by which purchasers can familiarise themselves with the work of this great man of music.

With his works by single composer, Lorin Maazel made history as Chief Conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. After the successful release of the album containing the complete symphonic works of Anton Bruckner, the BR-KLASSIK label now presents the complete symphonies of Franz Schubert, recorded in 2001. The present Chief Conductor of the Munich Philharmonic had already conducted Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony” at the age of eight.

The second album featuring the long-standing Chief Conductor of the BR Symphonieorchester.

Live recordings from Munich’s Prinzregententheater made in March 2001.

First release at an attractive midprice.

“These interpretations are by and large more tense and taut than the genial, relaxed manner typified by many previous, celebrated interpreters...Maazel’s treatment of the Fourth is urgent and vital...The performance of D.759 is graced by gorgeous instrumental tone in every department.” MusicWeb International, 24th May 2013

Sir George Solti, one of the greatest conductors of our day, died on 5th September 1997.

The definitive profile “Solti – The making of a Maestro”, made during the last year of his life, captures the amazing energy and passion for music of this remarkable man. Filmed with Solti in Budapest, Bavaria, Chicago and London, the documentary charts his exceptional musical journey; from his early years in Hungary to his accalaimed leadership of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. A film by renowned director Peter Maniura, coproduced with the BBC.

Solti was a most energetic conductor in both rehearsal and performance, with a frequently sharp and stabbing conducting style. At the same time he was also capable of producing the most beautiful legato playing.

No Solti recording is without some point of interest: his stature as one of the most outstanding conductors of the twentieth century is fully confirmed through this legacy.

As one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, his readings of the major composers of classical music have often been referred to.

With a deluxe four-disc set of newly remastered recordings we celebrate the unique, iconic art of Carlos Kleiber, who died on 13 July 2004. Without a doubt, Carlos Kleiber was the most charismatic conductor in the second half of the 20th century.

Exclusive to Deutsche Grammophon, he made few recordings of symphonic music – just one CD each of Beethoven (Fifth and Seventh Symphonies), Schubert (Third and “Unfinished” Symphonies) and Brahms (Fourth Symphony). These are among the greatest treasures of the DG catalogue. On CD alone, the Beethoven has sold over 600,000 copies since 1992 (and many more LPs and CDs before that).

Now, in commemoration of Kleiber’s death in 2004, we are offering a deluxe, limited-edition set (slipcase, hardcover book in the style of the Martha Argerich Lugano Concertos, 4779884), with newly remastered versions of these recordings at 24 bit / 96 kHz (CD 1 – Beethoven 5 & 7; CD 2 – Schubert 3 & 8; CD 3 – Brahms 4) .

Includes a BluRay Audio disc containing all the works AND a 70-minute audio documentary, tracing Kleiber’s career and his extraordinary ability to inspire the musicians he worked with. Contributors include Ileana Cotrubas, Felicity Lott, Dale Clevenger, Thomas Hampson, Clemens Hellsberg, Peter Jonas. With specially selected musical excerpts from Kleiber’s orchestral and opera recordings.

The 32-page booklet has a new article and timeline by journalist and author Jon Tolansky, who worked with Kleiber. The booklet also includes original covers and new rare photos of the conductor in the recording studio in Vienna, 1973 – moving documents of his passionate search for perfection. This set represents the best-ever version of these iconic recordings.

In addition to this deluxe set, early August will see the delicious release of a numbered, limited-edition 4-LP Set, every LP to be expertly re-mastered at Optimal from analogue sources (LP 1: Beethoven 5, LP 2: Beethoven 7; LP 3 Schubert 3 & 8; LP 4: Brahms 4). The pressings from Optimal will be on 180 gsm vinyl stock. Original LP front and back covers.

Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (Complete)

Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (Complete)


Bringing together all seven of Schubert’s completed symphonies, as well as the much loved B minor ‘Unfinished’, this set charts the development of Schubert’s voice as a symphonist. His first six symphonies were composed between 1813 and 1818 for the orchestra at the religious school that he attended in Vienna. Although they could be considered to be apprentice works, and are clearly influenced by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, and – in the case of the Sixth Symphony – Rossini, they are remarkable achievements for such a young composer, and the listener can hear some of the hallmarks of Schubert’s more forwardlooking, romantic style, such as a bolder and richer harmonic language, beginning to emerge.

After a serious illness in 1822, from which he only partially recovered, Schubert composed his final symphonic masterpieces, the ‘Unfinished’ (1822) and the ‘Great’ (1825–6). From the haunting slow introduction and the extraordinary sense of pathos of the ‘Unfinished’ to the joyful and rhythmically vital ‘Great’ symphony, both works showcase Schubert the symphonist at the peak of his powers and are some of the most popular and enduring pieces in the orchestral canon.

Schubert’s complete symphonies are performed here by the legendary Staatskapelle Dresden under the inspired direction of celebrated conductor Herbert Blomstedt, praised by Gramophone for his ‘incomparably refined sensitivity and canny interpretative prowess’.

“The playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is quite excellent, with fine work from the strings and commendable clarity of wind textures. This may be “big-band” Schubert, but never once did I sense a heaviness to the ensemble that impaired my enjoyment.” MusicWeb International, 14th April 2014
