The Complete Sony Classical Recordings celebrating conductor Frieder Bernius’s 70th birthday on 22 June 2017.

One of the leading conductors in historical informed performance, Frieder Bernius (born 22 June 1947) is a German conductor, the founder and director of the chamber choir Kammerchor Stuttgart (founded in 1968). They became leaders in historically informed performances. He also founded the Stuttgart Festival of Baroque music, "Internationale Festtage Alter Musik", in 1987, and is a recipient of the Edison Award (1990), Diapason d'Or (1990) and the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany (1993).

Since 1977, Bernius has collaborated with leading German orchestras and conducted the choirs of broadcasters, such as the SDR, NDR, WDR and RIAS Berlin. Bernius began recording with Sony Classical in 1989. In 1992 he recorded Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice with Nancy Argenta and Michael Chance. In May 1990 he was awarded the Dutch Edison Award for his recording of Symphoniae Sacrae III by Heinrich Schütz with the Musica Fiata, and in November 1990 he was awarded the French Diapason d'Or for his recording of Missa Dei Filii by Jan Dismas Zelenka with the Tafelmusik.
