The first comprehensive edition containing the entire of Clara Haskil's recordings for the Decca, Philips, Deutsche Grammophon and Westminster labels. The 17-CD set is released to mark the 50th anniversary (6 December 1960) of the death of the great Romanian-born pianist. The accompanying booklet also includes an infrormative article on Haskil "A prodigy of nature" by piano specialist Jeremy Siepmann.
The present set reunites three recitals by Clara Haskil: Hilversum (1952), Ludwigsburg Castle (1953) and the Edinburgh Festival (1957). The interest of this set resides in the recording of the Haydn sonata No. 37, the only one that exists of Clara Haskil. The Ludwigsburg recital on the other hand, is released for the first time complete.

This 50-CD collection of analogue albums aims to represent the heyday of Philips’ passion for great natural sound – the Stereo Years. There was a firm belief within the label’s team that recording technique was there to serve the music - the Musicians had their own views about how any given piece should be interpreted and how it should sound; the recording team’s job was to grasp that vision and make it a reality. This recording philosophy, combined with great artistry and visionary repertoire policy, created a special chapter in the history of classical music recordings that still inspires artists, sound engineers and collectors alike.
In 2014 Deutsche Grammophon celebrated the 20th anniversary of its flagship series, The Originals, with a limited edition collection featuring some of the labels greatest albums.
This second volume concludes the labels survey of its iconic series by presenting more legendary analogue albums. Including key recordings such as Beethovens Late Sonatas with Pollini, Berliozs Symphonie Fantastique with Markevitch, Brahmss Hungarian Dances with Karajan, Dvoraks New World with Fricsay, Chopin Preludes with Argerich…
The box set comprised 100 volumes featuring 72 pianists of the 20th century, each volume with two CDs and a booklet about the life and work of the featured pianist. The set contains a variety of composers from different eras, from Baroque to Contemporary classical.
