Notes & Reviews:

Over a period of 40 years Marriner and The Academy made over 300 recordings but it is the association with DECCA / ARGO that was so unique and resulted in a huge catalogue of recordings of Baroque and Classical repertory - many of which remain in the catalogue today.

Between 1967-77 a distinguished series of recordings of late 19th- and 20th-century repertory established themselves as classics of the gramophone. This 50th anniversary edition presents a selection of these albums in repertory that ranges from Wagner to Stravinsky, Bartók and Shostakovich.

Each CD is presented in a sleeve with a replica of the original LP cover.
