Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Christoph Eschenbach began his international career as a pianist with a range of recordings on DG, including Beethoven, Mozart and chamber music. This box set highlights his zeal for Romantic repertoire and features the complete Mendelssohn “Songs without Words” cycle, recorded in 1975 and previously available only in Japan. Eschenbach will receive the world-renowned “Ernst von Siemens Music Prize” on May 31, 2015 for his merit as an exceptional pianist and conductor.
