This 16-disc set contains what is without a doubt the most distinguished collection of Mahler performances ever to have been assembled in one place. DG has sensibly collected all of Bernstein's Mahler for Polygram labels, including the London "Das Lied von der Erde," and all of the orchestral song cycles: "Song of a Wayfarer," "Kindertotenlieder," "Rückert-Lieder," and "Des Knaben Wunderhorn." All of these recordings have been issued separately to general critical acclaim, and despite a veritable warehouse of new Mahler discs in the '90s, Bernstein's versions by and large still reign supreme.
Johann Hölzl aka Falco ist für mich einer der herausragenden deutschsprachigen Musiker der jüngeren Vergangenheit. Natürlich war nicht immer alles Gold was unter dem Namen des Österreichers veröffentlicht worden ist. Sony veröffentlicht nun eine 5-CD Box mit den Alben Einzelhaft, Junge Römer, Falco 3, Falco Symphonic und Donauinsel Live. In der Box findet man also die ersten drei Falco Album und zwei Alben welche posthum veröffentlicht worden sind.
Famed Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli is an iconic figure in music, as one of the most successful classical solo artists ever, and one of the best-selling performers in any genre, having sold more than 80 million albums worldwide of both his classical and pop albums. His worldwide hit albums such as Romanza, Amore, Passione and Love in Portofino have made him synonymous with love and romance. On July 10th, 13 titles from his incredible Pop catalog and 3 bonus discs of memorable Bocelli performances will be released in a special edition box set.
It was bound to happen sooner or later: pretty much everything known by Mahler put into one box (16 cd's).EMI and DG–which also drew on the catalogues of Decca and Philips–have each produced complete-edition boxed sets to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Mahler's birth. One set seems like an inexhaustible treasure trove; the other one is more like a mere assemblage of all of Mahler's music.

« Je hais les voyages et les explorateurs », toute première phrase de l’ouvrage, affirme sans détour son rejet de l’exotisme comme porte vers le sensationnel. Il s’agit ici d’un voyage bien plus philosophique, retour sur les études de terrain qui ont formé son esprit d’ethnologue. …
Among the great instrumental composers who were active in Italy in the 18th century, Giuseppe Tartini (Pirano d’Istria, 1692 - Padova, 1770) is the one who most explicitly focussed his production on his own chosen instrument, the violin, neglecting genres that in his day were very popular. 135 violin concertos and about 200 sonatas for violin and basso continuo form, in fact, the main bulk of his output. The Arte dell’Arco ensemble, who have met with great success with this series, measure themselves once again with Tartini’s beautiful and difficult concertos, all works recorded here for the first time.
