About

The success of Virtuoso goes against some of today’s received wisdom. In an age with fewer bricks-and-mortar retailers, a physical series like this should be tough going. But Virtuoso continues to thrive, bats away the competition, and puts classical into territories we otherwise might not reach.

Six new titles – three DG, three Decca - ensure this series continues to reach both existing and new listeners. This new batch offers big symphonies, key concertos, influential choral works and appealing chamber music.

All titles in the Virtuoso series offer excellent recordings, famous artists, innovative booklet notes and best-selling composers. They make serious classical music as easy and approachable as can be, with integrity and without compromise. These six new titles brings the range to 170 titles.
