Notes & Reviews:

As the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's first principal guest conductor from 1969 to 1972, Giulini was adored; from 1976 to 1978 he made some of his greatest recordings for Deutsche Grammophon - here they are, collected into a single box for the first time. This is the follow-up to DG's Giulini/Los Angeles box last year. Here are the complete recordings that Giulini made with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on DG - essential performances from Schubert to Prokofiev and Britten - many now being restored to the catalogue - and including his Grammy award-winning Mahler Ninth.

"DG's remastering of this marvelous Mahler Ninth eliminates some odd extraneous noise that marred what was otherwise a very fine recording, technically speaking. The performance itself has tremendous warmth and style, and whatever one's slight reservations, it remains a major statement by a great artist, delivered in a language of uncompromising emotional sincerity... Schubert's "Unfinished" makes an unusually apt coupling: the emotional curve of its two movements makes it almost a mini-Mahler Ninth without the two scherzos. Giulini's grave, dignified performance sounds gorgeous in this transfer." -Classics Today (on Mahler's 9th and Schubert's 8th Symphonies)

"I confess that I had not thought of Giulini as a conductor who would bring special insight into this showpiece, but he draws superlative playing from the Chicago orchestra and with tempi in the brilliant movements a fraction less hectic than is common - "Tuileries", "Unhatched Chickens", "Limoges" and "Hut on Fowl's Legs" all following that pattern - he produces results that are both exciting and unusually clear in detail. To say that it is like seeing the details of pointilliste paintings may give the wrong impression, for the textures are superbly co-ordinated, and the recording quality is gloriously rich as well as detailed." -Gramophone (on Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition)
