Decca and DGs 20C series is devoted to the compositional high points of the 20th century - the defining musical masterpieces of the era.

It presents a comprehensive overview of music from an often-turbulent era to provide a balanced overview of 20th-century composition.

26 essential and iconic works by 26 composers covering the years 1900-1949.

These are works you must know to understand the music of the first half of the 20th century.

Each album includes a timeline of 20th-century musical premieres, and repertoire notes by leading musicologist and writer Nigel Simeone, who also curated the 20C project, which set out the context, and introduce the composers and the works.
