Deutsche Grammophon is proud to celebrate its 111th birthday this year (December 6th, to be exact) and as part of the celebration will release a host of products designed to celebrate its rich history from the perspectives of both artistry and technology. Since its founding in 1898, Deutsche Grammophon has strived to be the leader in the classical music recording industry offering the most technologically advanced, highest quality recordings of the newest, brightest stars, as well as prominent, well-established artists. DG’s 111 celebration commemorates the label’s history (it is Universal Music Group’s oldest active label) and forward-thinking ideology (DG introduced the first commercial classical CD in 1983).
President Michael Lang said, “Deutsche Grammophon remains the preeminent classical recording company presenting the finest in recorded music by the best artists—while anticipating and fulfilling the evolving interests of its old and new audiences. Deutsche Grammophon is poised for a vibrant future as remarkable as its storied past.”
This unique collection of 55 CDs forms Deutsche Grammophon’s major release in its 111th-anniversary celebrations. The limited-edition boxed set gathers together many landmark recordings from the past to the present. Most of them appear complete, as originally programmed, in their original cover-art, and several include additional material.

Label : Archiv
Format : flac track
Cover : Yes
The box-set traces the history of Archiv from 1947, when the first recordings were made (Helmut Walcha playing Bach organ works), to a bonus CD featuring selections from the new 2013 albums mentioned above. A complete overview is appended. In between comes a sequence of albums several of which are new to CD from the great names of the label, from Walcha, Wenzinger and Safford Cape, through Karl Richter, Nikolas Harnoncourt and Sir Charles Mackerras, on to David Munrow, Ralph Kirkpatrick, Jurgen Jurgens, to Reinhard Goebel, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Trevor Pinnock, Paul McCreesh, Marc Minkowski, Anne Sofie von Otter, Magdalena Kozená and many, many more. The list of artists who have recorded for Archiv is truly astounding.
This is an original-cover box, starting with the austere yellow covers of the 1940s and 1950s gradually giving way to the great historical illustrations and images that featured up to the 1990s, when artists at last began to make an appearance (there were no artist photos in the 1950s!)
