A comprehensive edition of symphonic music charting Claudio Abbado’s distinguished career with Deutsche Grammophon to celebrate his 80th birthday in June. It seems incredible, but Claudio bbado’s career with DG stretches back over more than four decades. In that time he has made innumerable recordings that have stood the test of time – classics right from the start. In opera, in modern music, as a partner in concerto recordings, Abbado has left a glorious indelible mark.

In more recent years, every Abbado recording has been an event, something special – whether his Mahler symphonies with Berlin, or the Mozart, Bach and Pergolesi projects with ‘his’ Orchestra Mozart. And, of course, as a sponsor and champion of new orchestras he is unrivalled – not least with his most recent creations, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and the Orchestra Mozart.

His Grand-Old-Man status assured Abbado remains a modest, unassuming but tenaciously demanding orchestral leader. Now, to celebrate the maestro’s reaching his 80th year, DG have prepared an ambitious Symphony Edition as a birthday tribute: a limited-edition 41-CD box set Complete recordings of eight great symphonists – Mozart (with Orchestra Mozart), Haydn, Beethoven (with Berliner Philharmoniker), Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Bruckner and Mahler (with Berliner Phliharmoniker and Lucerne festival Orchestra).
All recordings have been personally selected by Claudio Abbado.
