About

This ten-CD box set contains major symphonies from composers such as Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms, Bruckner, Dvorak, Haydn, Mahler, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Tchaikovsky - nineteen original works in total.

Top orchestras from Europe and the United States demonstrate the high standard of their art, led by conductors of world renown: Bernstein, Karajan, Klemperer, Szell, Furtwängler, and Toscanini.

The demands in terms of sound these masterpieces present have been met brilliantly by the engineers working on these recordings and many of them have hardly been surpassed until today, making the nineteen works in this CD box the ideal foundation for a collection of the major symphonies in classical music, both musically and technically.
