About

NEOS has great pride in releasing this 17-CD box sItalicet celebrating this prolific and well-loved musician's career.

The career of the cellist and conductor Heinrich Schiff spanned many decades. After his studies with Tobias Kühne and André Navarra he made his debut as a cellist in Vienna and London in 1971. Subsequently he was a regular guest of all leading orchestras, at the big music centres and at the major festivals in Europe, North America and Japan.

Throughout his career, he performed with conductors such as Abbado, Celibidache, Chailly, Dohnányi, Eschenbach, Gielen, Haitink, Harnoncourt, Jansons, Masur, Rattle, Salonen, Sawallisch, Sinopoli, Tennstedt and Welser-Möst but more recently, he released recordings of the main cello repertoire, ranging from Vivaldi and Haydn to Lutosławski and B.A. Zimmermann.

Apart from his prize-winning recording of the Bach solo suites and the Shostakovich cello concertos (for the latter he was awarded the "Grand Prix du Disque"), Heinrich Schiff recorded, among others, the Dvořák Cello Concerto (Vienna Philharmonic with André Previn) and the Schumann Cello Concerto (Berlin Philharmonic with Bernard Haitink). There was also widespread critical acclaim for the complete Beethoven works for cello and piano with Till Fellner, released in 2000. His later releases included a recording with Frank Peter Zimmermann (duos from Bach to Ravel).
