450 Years Staatskapelle Berlin Great Recordings

A 15-CD box set will be released by Deutsche Grammophon in April celebrating the 450th anniversary of the Staatskapelle Berlin.

It is an attractive set that includes recordings from famous conductors associated with this great orchestra. Each CD is devoted to a single conductor.

Furtwängler is obviously one of the conductors included. He occupies CD 6 with Act 2 of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde recorded on 3 October 1947. This recording has been released by the French Furtwängler Society but the latter includes Act 3 as well.

I will be eagerly awaiting.
