Riccardo Chailly Stravinsky Edition (Exclusive 11CD)

Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the composer’s death, Decca has assembled the complete recordings of Igor Stravinsky made by Riccardo Chailly. These are presented together for the very first time. Chailly has recorded more music by Stravinsky than he has by any other composer. Highlights include a number of radio broadcast recordings with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, four chamber works including Dumbarton Oaks on CD for the very first time and the rediscovered Chant funèbre, the manuscript lost for over a century, that was exclusively recorded for Decca with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra to wide critical acclaim. 30 works in total, arranged chronologically, in a handsome box, with a 100+-page booklet with sung texts, photographs and a complete index, all packaged in a handsome cap box.
