Image Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy - Edition (56 CD)
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was born in Hamburg in 1809 and died in Leipzig at the age of 38. He was very early musically gifted. Mendelssohn performed in public at the age of 9 and composed already from the age of 11. As a pupil of Friedrich Zelter, who was a friend of Goethe, Mendelssohn composed at the age of 17 his first masterpiece: the Overture to the Midsummer Night's Dream. This is included in the extensive CD box as well as a large number of other known or less known pieces by him. The String Quartet in F Minor Op. 80 - written in memory of his beloved sister Fanny - which was recorded in this collection by the Aurora String Quartet is undoubtedly one of his most beautiful works. The Gächinger Kantorei with Helmuth Rilling, the Bach Collegium Stuttgart, the Bartholdy Piano Quartet, the Heidelberger Sinfoniker with Thomas Fey, Ana-Marija Markovina and other renowned interpreters and orchestras can also be heard.

Image Emil Gilels Edition, Vol. 2 (15 CD)
The piano music expert and music commentator Attila Csampai recently marveled at the “lasting impression of Gilels’s implacable precision, the energetic clarity and purity of his musical logic, the profound, unshakeable humanity of his messages and a totally unglamorous objectivity”. This new release showcases Russian repertoire, performed by Emil Gilels, with recordings made between 1940-1963. Widely recognized as one of the greatest pianists of all time, Emil Gilels led the way to the West for his generation of Soviet pianists. His American concert debut in 1955 was renowned across the country. With a repertoire ranging from Baroque to twentieth century works, he is universally admired for his superb technical control and burnished tone on recordings.

Image Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff & Others: Piano Works (L
Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) was one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. Profil Edition Günter Hänssler is progressively releasing all the recordings that the great Soviet virtuoso made in his Sturm und Drang period between 1945 and 1963. Most of them were largely unknown in the West during the Cold War, as Richter could only perform till 1960 behind the “Iron Curtain”, that is to say, in the Soviet Union and the satellite states of Eastern Europe. Profil Edition Günter Hänssler has already released box sets with Richter’s interpretations of works by Ludwig van Beethoven (PH 16030), Franz Schubert (PH 17005), Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms (PH 17967), Franz Liszt and Frédéric Chopin (PH 18041), Dmitry Shostakovich (PH 20054) and Sergey Rakhmaninov and Sergei Prokofiev (PH 19052). The present 13-album set is devoted to all the works by Russian composers that Sviatoslav Richter recorded live or in the studio between 1946 and 1963.

According to the list of stage roles, Maria Callas appeared over 600 times in 41 different operas and two operettas between April 2, 1939, and July 5, 1975. An astonishing number of these performances have been captured on fascinating recordings. This CD box set features six of the finest recordings in chronological order, selected by Dieter Fuoss primarily on the basis of artistic worth and secondarily on the basis of sound quality. At the same time, there was to be no duplication of the live recordings released by Callas’s regular label EMI (now Warner).

Image Sviatoslav Richter Plays Rachmaninoff & Prokofiev
Sviatoslav Richter (1915-1997) is regarded as one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century. Profil Edition Günter Hänssler has already released boxed sets of Richter’s interpretations of works by Ludwig van Beethoven (PH16030), Franz Schubert (PH17005), as well as Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms (PH17967). The edition presented here on eleven albums is dedicated to the two composers Sergey Rakhmaninov and Sergey Prokofiev. The two Russian (Soviet) composers were formidable pianists, like the composers mentioned above, and left for posterity compositions for their instrument with some incredibly difficult passages. To master them, in order to penetrate towards their musical core, requires first and foremost excellent piano technique.

Image Sviatoslav Richter plays Schubert 1949-1963 (10 CD
The present Edition of Richter’s Schubert interpretations from 1948 to 1964 has some CD premieres to offer, taken from hitherto unreleased live recordings. One is the two movement version of the Piano Sonata no. 6 in E minor D566. The Moscow live recording from 1958 also shows that Richter is one of the very few pianists of note to have played both versions, the other being in three movements. That also applies to the shortened (Urtext) and full (ed. Brahms) versions of Impromptu no. 1 D946 and the largely unknown original version of the third Impromptu of D899 (in G major) and the popular version in G flat. Then there is the never officially published recording of the unfinished Sonata no. 15 D840, nicknamed 'Reliquie' in the mistaken belief that it was Schubert’s last sonata.

Schubert was a true lieder composer, and his piano works too have song-like character. This Edition accordingly includes Sviatoslav Richter 'accompanying' at the piano. The six Schubert songs recorded in 1953 and sung – in Russian – by his lifelong companion, soprano Nina Dorliac, are a genuine rarity. The same CD (no. 9 of this Edition) features another fine example of Richter the great solo artist as a team player, joining composer Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) in the Eight Variations in A flat D813 for piano duet.

Gieseking translated feelings effortlessly into physical movement, resulting in a unique emotional immediacy of sound. The combination of precision and such unbridled devotion again proved its worth in Walter Gieseking’s recording of Mozart’s piano works, music which demands the highest technical ability alongside an essential lightness in its acoustic. The present complete recording illustrates why Walter Gieseking must necessarily be considered one of the most important pianists of the twentieth century

Image Early Recordings: An Anthology (7CD)
Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is undoubtedly one of the greatest vocalists of the past century – and one of those with the most extensive discography. Yet we constantly note the disappearance from the catalogue of early recordings for radio or gramophone, particularly those which covered less popular repertoire. And there are a number of recordings that have simply never been issued on album. The present anthology aims to bridge this gap – with seven albums offering an average of 77 minutes playing time, or a total of some nine hours of music: rare repertoire, seldom or never yet available in these versions on album, matched by indispensable gems of recorded music such as the young Fischer-Dieskau in Gustav Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen in the orchestral version under the baton of the great Wilhelm Furtwängler. That legendary orchestra director, in his turn, judged that “no-one has ever sung Mahler better” than the young baritone.

Image Bernard Haitink & Staatskapelle Dresden Live (6 CD
Anniversary Edition On 22nd September 2018 the Staatskapelle Dresden celebrated its 470th jubilee. The orchestra was directed by Bernard Haitink from 2002 to 2004. (Haitink turns 90 in 2019.) Principal Conductor since the 2012/13 season has been Christian Thielemann. Founded by Prince Elector Moritz von Sachsen in 1548, it is one of the oldest orchestras in the world and steeped in tradition.

Image Successful Beginning (4 CD)
Martha Argerich was born in Buenos Aires in 1941 and in the course of her career has risen to become the best-known female pianist in the world. She attracted attention at the early age of three at a school performance. Her formal musical education began when she was five years old, and in 1949 she publicly performed piano concertos by Mozart and Beethoven in Buenos Aires. She was able to attend concerts given by the great pianists of that era and was very impressed with their skill. Friedrich Gulda accepted her as a student in 1955 and she went to Vienna to study with him, although he freely admitted that he did not know what he could teach her. In 1957 she won first prizes at piano competitions in Bolzano and Geneva. Her early recordings made in Buenos Aires (1955) and Geneva (1957) form an interesting part of this collection. These were followed by performances at radio stations in Hamburg and Cologne and then by her first official vinyl recordings. She gained early international recognition in 1961 thanks to a concert in Leningrad, now Saint Petersburg, where Martha Argerich performed together with the brilliant violinist Ruggiero Ricci. An example of that historic performance is included in this first audio documentation of the beginnings of this exceptional pianist’s career.

Kurt Sanderling and the Berlin Symphony Orchestra recorded this digital set of Johannes Brahms' four symphonies, the Haydn Variations, and the Alto Rhapsody in 1990, so it must be clearly distinguished from Sanderling's exceptional analog recordings from the early 1970s, which he made with the Dresden Staatskapelle and which have won many admirers. For many years Sanderling's career in the former Eastern Bloc countries kept him under-represented in western catalogs, though his fine reputation preceded him, thanks to stints as a guest conductor and appearances at many European festivals. In performing Brahms, Sanderling's interpretations are traditional, steady, and solid, and might even be considered a bit cautious in this particular case, owing to the abilities of his musicians.

Image Franck, Debussy & Others: Violin Works (6CD)
Jacques Thibaud is considered to be one of the early 20th century’s leading violinists and chamber musicians. Such composers as Eugène Ysaÿe and George Enescu dedicated works to him. His memory lives on in such bodies as the Jacques Thibaud String Trio, founded in 1994, who pay homage to his lifelong love of ambitious and eloquent music-making in ensemble. The violinist was born in Bordeaux in the ancient lands of Aquitaine in south-west France, in Département Gironde, on September 27, 1880. His father had recognized his son’s musical talents and was still giving him violin lessons when Jacques gave his first public performance in Bordeaux at the age of eight. In 1893, when he was 13, he began studying at the Paris Conservatoire with the eminent Belgian violinist Martin Pierre Joseph Marsick (1847-1924), winning the conservatory’s Premier Prix in 1896. He also took instruction from Marsick’s compatriot Eugène-Auguste Ysaÿe (1858-1931). From 1940 Jacques Thibaud taught at the Paris school of music directed by the French pianist, piano teacher and writer on music Marguerite Long (1874-1966), with whom he gave many concerts. The two artists initiated the Long-Thibaud competition for pianists and violinists (Concours international Marguerite Long–Jacques Thibaud) in 1943. The violinist later taught at the École normale de musique de Paris, founded in 1919 by Alfred Cortot , and in the 1950s directed summer courses at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy. The 73-year-old violinist’s life was tragically cut short on September 1, 1953 – 10 days after his last concert in France – when the plane taking him to Tokyo crashed into Mont Cimet near Barcennolette in the French Alps.

Image Knappertsbusch Edition - Brahms and Bruckner: The
Few – if any – conductors are linked with the works of Richard Wagner in the eyes of the world’s music lovers to the same extent as Hans Knappertsbusch. Immediately after his conducting debut in Mühlheim/Ruhr from 1910 to 1912, he applied for a post as Assistant Conductor in Bayreuth. When in 1951 the famous festival reopened its doors, his name became legendary as the Parsifal conductor. The main focus of his concert programmes, however, was the works of the great Romantic nineteenth-century composers, especially Johannes Brahms and Anton Bruckner. Despite that subsequent generations have developed their own views on those works, Knappertsbusch’s recordings have retained their benchmark status to this day. Born in Elberfeld, now part of the city of Wuppertal, in 1888, Knappertsbusch was Music Director at the city’s opera house before he went, via Leipzig and Dessau, to Munich, where he eventually succeeded Bruno Walter as General Music Director. He was no fan of the Nazi regime, however, and so he left Munich and went to Vienna to conduct the Philharmonic and opera, returning eventually to Munich, where he died in 1965, after conducting his last Bayreuth Parsifal the previous year.

Image George Szell: Concertos and Symphonies (10 CD)
George Szell (b. 1897 in Budapest – d. 1970 in Cleveland) was both feared for his relentless, intense rehearsals and celebrated for their artist results. He turned the Cleveland Orchestra, of which he was Music Director from 1946 to 1970, into one of the world's most technically brilliant orchestras. There are also impressive recordings which document his work with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera (1942 – 1946). When Szell once said that he was his own worst enemy, the Met's General Manager, Rudolf Bing, reportedly responded: ?Not while I’m alive.” His path to becoming one of the world's best conductors was meticulously prepared. Szell studied in Vienna, where he had given his debut concert at the age of 10, and in Leipzig, where his teachers included Max Reger. After conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker playing one of his own compositions aged 16, Richard Strauss hired Szell as piano accompanist at the Hofoper in Berlin, where he remained between 1914 and 1917. He then went on to succeed Otto Klemperer at the Strasbourg Opera House, from where he moved to the New German Theatre in Prague, then to Darmstadt and Düsseldorf, before finally becoming Principal Conductor of the Berlin State Opera (1924 – 1929), Director of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and teacher at the Berlin Academy of Music (1927 – 1930). He returned to Prague between 1930 and 1936, this time as General Music Director, during which time he also conducted the Scottish National Orchestra and the Residentie Orkest in The Hague (1937 – 1939). When World War II broke out just after he had finished a tour of Australia, George Szell was able to emigrate to New York, and it was there that Toscanini invited him to conduct the NBC Symphony Orchestra. As well as Szell's outstanding achievements with the Cleveland Orchestra, his post-war work included concerts with the Amsterdam Concertgebouw orchestra and important premieres at the Salzburg Festival, including of Rolf Liebermann’s Penelope and The School for Wives and Werner Egk’s The Irish Legend. Szell also conducted premieres of works by Barber, Blacher, von Einem and Walton. He teamed up with the young pianist Leon Fleischer for the big Beethoven and Brahms concertos, and the two produced recordings which still serve as a benchmark today.

Image Hans Swarowsky - the Conductor - Complete edition
Hans Swarowsky - The Conductor “The composer interprets himself, and don´t you do anything to help him!” Swarowsky began his conducting career at the Stuttgart Opera in 1927, this after a short period as a repetiteur at the Vienna Volksoper. He then moved on to Hamburg and succeeded Erich Kleiber in Berlin. He was placed under a conducting ban in Germany in 1936 (his father´s side of the family was of Jewish background) but was able to continue his career in Zurich for a few years. During World War II he had to limit his work to opera assignments for the Bavarian State Opera and the Salzburg Festival. He was the director of the Polish Philharmonic in Cracow for a short time in 1944 and became the principal conductor of the Vienna Symphony after the war. He also served as the director of the Graz Opera until 1950 and as the conductor of the Scottish National Orchestra from 1957 to 1959. Herbert von Karajan then appointed him to a permanent conducting post at the Vienna State Opera. Swarowsky had taught a conducting class at the Vienna Music Academy since 1946 and left a mark on a good many younger musicians, among them conducting stars such as Claudio Abbado and Zubin Mehta. During his lifetime Swarowsky was even more famous as teacher than as a conductor, and there is something to the claim that he was the most coveted and most influential conducting teacher of the century. His unconventional conducting style was ahead of its time and represented a radical questioning of the then dominant late-romantic performance practice. Swarowsky´s holistic understanding of art viewed music as part of a larger cultural whole and is reflected in his sayings and teachings.
