Notes & Reviews:
In homage to the great maestro who passed away this year, Warner Classics pays tribute to the life of Wolfgang Sawallisch by gathering recordings of his renowned Beethoven complete symphonies with the Concertgebouw and of his complete cycle of Brahms orchestral works with the London Philharmonic together in one set. Sawallisch's interpretative credo is stated clearly in the title of his autobiography: "For clarity's sake," and is truly articulated in his music.
