A New Complete Edition, presenting Mozarts entire work including every last fragment, in the most authoritative edition ever created.
The Edition presents over 240 hours of music, 600 solo performers and ensembles including 60 orchestras and every significant Mozart interpreter of the past 30 years.
Five hours of new recordings have been commissioned for this Edition including premieres of previously-lost compositions and every perform-able fragment. Moreover, a further 25 CDs present key works in great alternative versions, while five more CDs present legendary and historic performances, making this Edition a document of the greatest Mozart performances as well as of his complete works.
Two handsome, lavishly illustrated hardcover books present documentation at a level of authority never before seen in any boxed set, with over 150,000 words in each language, written by one of the great Mozart scholars of our age, Professor Clifford Eisen.
Editorial is presented across two editions, one with English and French language, and the other with German and Japanese. Lending the Edition even more weight is the publication for the first time of a new Kochel guide presenting in short form the new Kochel catalogue developed over many years by the International Stiftung Mozarteum.
Four frame-able prints are included in every set, including a Mozart letter and a score.
The 200 CD edition is broken down into five sections.
Chamber: Discs 1 - 49
Orchestral: Discs 50 - 101
Theater: Discs 102 - 152
Sacred & Private: Discs 153 - 170
Supplemental: Discs 174 - 200
To mark the 225th anniversary of Mozart's death, Decca and DG will release the most authoritative, complete and scholarly box set ever devoted to the work of a single composer. Created in partnership with the Mozarteum Foundation Salzburg and Mozart expert Professor Cliff Eisen of King's College London, the 200-CD set features 600 world-class soloists and 60 orchestras including alternative interpretations and over 5 hours of newly recorded material.
BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
I could go on for pages... .but the point is that a Complete Mozart Edition has never before been this complete, never had this variety, and never exuded this kind of authority - and the presentation does it proud. An extraordinary achievement, and a timely one as well.
Classics Today, 24th October 2016
The painstaking care, preparation, scholarship and inclusiveness distinguishing Mozart 225 cannot be disputed.
Gramophone Magazine, November 2016
For Mozartians, it's sheer heaven in a moss-green box... it will provide years of Mozartian joy, whether you stick to the well-known or dive into the rarities. And however you take your Mozart, this anniversary box is a thing of great beauty and a remarkable achievement.
New York Times, 24th November 2016
For a Mozart lover who values library-type completeness over personal-favorite performances, this set practically screams "Gift!
