Wiener Philharmoniker Deluxe Edition Vol 1 (20CD)

This luxurious hardback limited edition provides a fascinating cross-section of the 170-year history of one of the world’s greatest orchestras: the Wiener Philharmoniker. The 100-page lavishly illustrated hardcover coffee-table book houses 20 CDs of recordings with 25 conductors spanning the past 70 years. Included are rarities from the archives and live recordings of world premieres that have not previously been released. The present edition is notable in particular for the links between the works that are featured here and outstanding events in the orchestra’s history – events, moreover, that have helped to shape its sense of identity.
