The Originals: Legendary Recordings from the Deutsche Grammophon Catalogue [50 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

A 50 CD Originals Jackets Collection celebrating the 20th anniversary of THE ORIGINALS series, featuring the bestselling items from the series' history and highlighting the key artists and recordings from DG's LP era.

Key recordings such as Beethoven 5th and 7th by Kleiber, Mahler 5th by early Karajan, Dvorák Slavonic Dances by Kubelik, Schöne Müllerin by Wunderlich, Zauberflöte and Tristan und Isolde by Böhm, Dvorák Cello Concerto by Rostropovich, Pathétique by Kempff, Mendelssohn Violin Concerto by Mutter, Argerich's Debut Recital and many more of the extensive ORIGINALS catalogue, rich of artistic singularity and of commercially strong impact up to this day.

Not only does the new box set showcase some well-known ORIGINALS items, but also adds TWO NEW ITEMS to the ORIGINALS catalogue, never released before within this series: Chopin Études opp.10 & 25 with Maurizio Pollini and Brahms Cello Sonatas Opp.38 & 99 with Mstislav Rostropovich and Rudolf Serkin.

In February 1995 Deutsche Grammophon released a batch of 25 historic CDs called The Originals, launching a mid-price reissue project whose scope and depth would gradually change the face of classical record collecting. The concept was simple: trawling DG's huge archives for treasures from every phase of the vinyl LP era - many long unavailable or never before released on the silver disc - representing all the company's major artists and most of its landmark recordings from 1949 to 1986, one of the richest periods in the medium's entire history.
