Bernard Haitink: The Symphony Edition / Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra [36 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

Haitink will be 85 on March 4, 2014 and this set presents his six complete symphonic cycles by cornerstone classical composers: Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner, Mahler, Schumann and Tchaikovsky. Originally recorded for Philips, the CDs are now smartly re-packaged in a collectible cube.

Every single symphonic cycle is played by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, recently voted by Gramophone Magazine as 'The Greatest Orchestra in the World'.

Dutch-born Bernard Haitink made his debut with the Concertgebouw Orchestra on November 7, 1956. From 1963 Haitink was Principal Conductor, a position he held for 25 years. An exclusive Philips artist for more than 30 years, Haitink remains fully active on the international concert scene. 2013/14 is the 60th season of his conducting career. During this season he celebrates his 85th birthday with a series of concerts in New York, with the LSO, Boston Symphony and New York Philharmonic Orchestras.
