John Williams - The Complete Columbia Album Collection - Box Set 58CDs

Label : RCA
Format : Flac (image + cue)
Cover : Yes

In celebration of his 75 birthday, Sony Classical is releasing the first-ever complete collection of recordings by the incomparable guitarist, John Williams. The Complete Album Collection features 57 original albums made over four decades, including his style-crossing collaborations, with over 60 works available for the first time on CD, all remastered from the original tapes. The 58-CD plus DVD new box set features three different Williams recordings of that most popular of all guitar works, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez plus a performance of its much loved Adagio from Williams’ celebrated 1993 Seville Concert. That entire concert is presented in the box set too, on both CD and DVD, the latter including a bonus documentary portrait of the artist. Also included are the hugely successful albums Williams recorded with Julian Bream in the 70s, arguably the finest ever made of music for two guitars. It’s a must have for the countless fans of this “prince of guitar” and, indeed, for any lover of guitar music.
