55-CD Set
"A lavish 55-CD original jacket, original couplings collection celebrating Riccardo Chailly’s 40 years on Decca. The set includes complete cycles of Beethoven, Brahms (two cycles), Schumann (two cycles), Bruckner and Mahler with orchestras with whom Chailly has been most closely associated: the Gewandhausorchester, the Royal Concertgebouw, and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. The box includes a 120-page book, including: a new retrospective by James Jolly with interviews with Maestro Chailly and his Decca producers.
“Chailly [has a] rare talent for transforming the utterly familiar into music ripe for rediscovery: you can't help but take notice. The landscape is re-primed and mapped afresh. Familiar landmarks have the accumulated expressive debris of nearly a century of recorded history swept away. Your wits are sharpened; you listen again. For Chailly, all music must aspire to be 'new music' again.” Gramophone
