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.

  • 8CD set - An homage to this late, great conductor who passed away in 2013
  • Set includes complete symphonic cycles of Beethoven and Brahms with the Concertgebouw and London Philharmonic Orchestra respectively
  • Sawallisch's reputation was made conducting the core Austro-German repertoire
  • Held many Kapellmeister posts in his long and distinguished career
