Product Description

Product Description

Claudio Abbado
Berliner Philharmoniker | Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester | Orchestra Mozart | Lucerne Festival Orchestra

This DVD Box will be released in honour of Claudio Abbados 80th anniversary on June 26th. It contains an extensive collection of concert recordings and the documentary Hearing the Silence, capturing the outstanding work and repertoire of this formidable conductor on 8 DVDs.

Claudio Abbado, musical director of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan (1968-1986) and the Berliner Philharmoniker (1989-2002) has always been supportive to the younger music generation and hence founded excellent orchestras such as the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, European Union Youth Orchestra and the Orchestra Mozart. His musical career took him all over the world to the most prestigious opera and concert houses from Milan, London, Chicago to Berlin, Vienna and Bologna. A tremendous achievement which is captured in this Box.

These 8 DVDs contain marvellous recordings of Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Stravinksky, Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Verdi, Mahler and Bach performed by excellent Orchestras such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, accompanied by exceptional soloists like Alfred Brendel , Andrea Rost, Karita Mattila, Barbara Bonney all conducted by one of the greatest conductors of our time.

HASH(0x89a82ec4) out of 5 stars High level DVD, good recording quality, perfect performances by the Berliner Philh. 15 April 2014

I consider it as a privilege that I have known Abbado personally. Both of us attended the Dimitri Mitropoulos competition in 1963 in New York. In that time he was already a remarkable talent, I was a baby. It was easy to admit that he deserved the first price.
He experienced the music deep inside. I have never seen him using a score!
Beside that he was a modest and casual type of person, and he knew exactly how two deal with his fellow musicians, meanwhile keeping a natural distance. His orchestra loved him, in contrast to the previous boss, von Karaján. We may say that Abbado was one of the greatest conductors of the last 50 years. I highly recommend this DVD.
