Synopsis

Product Description
The First Complete Collection of
The Maestro's RCA Recordings

Specially Priced 51-CD Limited Edition Box Set

In celebration of the astounding career of conductor Sir Colin Davis, who passed away last year at the age of eighty-five, Sony Masterworks is proud to release Sir Colin Davis The RCA Legacy, the first complete collection of all of the Maestro's RCA Recordings. The RCA Legacy enshrines his relationships with the three orchestras with whom he was most closely associated during his later years: the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle and the London Symphony Orchestra. For Davis, music always represented "a kind of alchemy that could transform reality into imaginative possibilities," as indeed he transformed himself from an orchestral clarinetist into a world-class conductor. That imaginative alchemy is evident throughout this collection. Along with interpretations of the three composers to whom he was always most devoted Berlioz, Sibelius and Mozart - The RCA Legacy collection also includes notable versions of Mahler s Forth and Eighth Symphonies, Brahms A German Requiem and complete recordings of Wagner's Lohengrin, Verdi's Falstaff and Beethoven's Fidelio. The 51-CD box set includes all of the recordings that Sir Colin made for the RCA Victor label between 1988 and 2000, and preserve what is widely considered to be the Golden Age of one of the world's most gifted, respected and much-loved conductors.
