Deutsche Grammophon presents a 22CD set spanning the greatest recordings of Pinchas Zukerman, featuring the original cover art of the albums, new liner notes by Norbert Hornig and many photos.

Between 1974 and 1996 Pinchas Zukerman recorded 22 albums for DG and Philips (three for Decca), mainly as solo violinist but also as solo violist and as conductor, working closely with both the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. He teamed up with some of the greatest artists of his time, including Daniel Barenboim, Itzhak Perlman, Midori, Herman Baumann and Michala Petri.

It began in 1974 with a classic recording of Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending with Daniel Barenboim and The English Chamber Orchestra. Over the next two decades, Pinchas Zukerman released a series of albums for Deutsche Grammophon:

• The great Violin Concertos by Beethoven, Brahms and Sibelius

• Benchmark recordings of the Brahms Violin and Viola Sonatas

• The Bach Brandenburg Concertos with the Los Angeles Phil

• Iconic Mozart with Itzhak Perlman and a star-studded Four Seasons with Stern, Mintz and Perlman

• In 1986 the searching Through Roses, a new composition by Zukerman’s long-time piano-partner Marc Neikrug

For Philips he recorded an equally attractive number of albums:

• The Mendelssohn Violin Concerto (coupled with the Octet)

• He teamed up with Midori in Bach, with horn-player Herman Baumann for the Mozart Horn Concertos, and with recorder player Michala Petri in a Telemann programme.

• Two anthologies of popular and light pieces.

• For Decca, a 2-CD set of Schubert Piano Trios with Ashkenazy and Lynn Harrell, and, as violist, Berlioz’s Harold in Italy with Montréal under Dutoit.

The box brings together for the first time the wide variety of Zukerman’s recordings on DG and Philips
