About

Italian maestro Claudio Abbado is 80 on 26 June 2013. Between February 1966 and January 1969 he made a series of 9 LP recordings for Decca. This small legacy already gave a clear indication of Abbado’s musical sympathies and the range of repertory he was conducting in the concert hall and on record, and which would continue to characterize his future career.

This set brings together Abbado’s complete Decca studio recordings for the first time.
