About

175 years ago, on 28 March 1842, Otto Nicolai raised the baton for the first ever concert of a new ensemble destined to become one of the world’s great orchestras. With its unmistakeable sound, the Wiener Philharmoniker has always been defined by its unswerving commitment to the great German tradition of orchestral playing.

Deutsche Grammophon’s 175th Anniversary Edition offers a hand-picked selection of the best albums of the orchestra released on the label. It is both a glorious overview of the orchestra’s core repertoire, while exploring its deep collaborations with the most influential and distinguished conductors of the past 50 years: Wilhelm Furtwängler, Bruno Walter, Leonard Bernstein, Karl Böhm, Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, Pierre Boulez, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

44-CD + Bonus-DVD Deluxe Limited Edition developed and edited in close collaboration with the orchestra

The set includes rare photographs from the archives of the Wiener Philharmoniker as well as two new sets of liner notes by Dr. Silvia Kargl, Head of the Historic Archive of the Vienna Philharmonic, and Richard Evidon.

Major works by Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Mozart and Richard Strauss are conducted by the most distinguished orchestral leaders including Abbado, Bernstein, Böhm, Boulez, Furtwängler, Gardiner, Giulini, Harnoncourt, Karajan, Knappertsbusch, Levine, Previn, Thielemann and more, with recordings spanning from 1951 to 2004.
