About

As the Staatskapelle Berlin celebrates its 450th anniversary, Deutsche Grammophon presents 15 discs of sound recordings of outstanding artistic merit from the venerable, world class orchestra under its great conductors.

Included on disc for the first time are broadcast recordings and rare treasures from the shellac era.

Presenting an abundance of new, state of the art remasterings (apart from discs 13 & 14) reflecting the orchestra’s Viennese Classical repertory, the symphonies of high and late Romanticism from Schubert to Brahms, Bruckner and Mahler, with the dawn of modernism represented by works by Richard Strauss, Reger and Schoenberg as well as by Paul Dessau, while the Staatskapelle’s operatic repertoire is represented largely by Wagner.

Each CD is devoted to a single conductor who has left their mark on the Staatskapelle’s playing.

A ‘bonus’ disc documents some of the distinguished resident and guest conductors from the shellac era.

The accompanying booklet includes a Foreword by Daniel Barenboim, the Staatskapelle’s general music director; an essay examining the century of recordings represented in this set and a comprehensive timeline chronicling the orchestra’s 450-year history, by Detlef Giese, principal dramaturge at the State Opera Unter den Linden.
