As a result, the Wergo label is not only part of the history of new music but also continues to make contributions to it. In May 2012 Wergo celebrates its 50th anniversary. In celebration, Wergo is publishing a 5-CD set with music from five decades - all for an especially reasonable price.

The CD-set includes the following Wergo releases:
