Description

Sir Colin Davis’ recordings for the LSO are boxed together in this 13 disc set, celebrating the extraordinary output of this greatly loved British conductor – and previous Music Director of the Royal Opera. Includes his triumphant recording of Berlioz’s epic Les Troyens!

 

The collection includes previously unreleased material from the LSO Live archive, and two much loved recordings in high-resolution SACD for the first time, Dvorak Symphony No 9 and Berlioz Symphonie fantastique. Never before seen private correspondence and photos from Sir Colin’s archives accompany the discs. The anthology is completed with a bonus DVD documentary by Reiner Moritz. This portrait includes his last public statements, and contributions from Sir David Attenborough, Sir Simon Rattle and Roger Wright. The documentary highlights his work in masterclasses, opera, concerts and to-camera talk which reveals the man behind the musician.
