This unique collection of 55 CDs (477 6167) forms Deutsche Grammophon’s major release in its 111th-anniversary celebrations. The limited-edition box-set gathers together many landmark recordings – from the past to the present.

Wagner at The Met is the first authorized release of Richard Wagner's operatic masterpieces, including the complete Ring Cycle, captured live in historic broadcasts from The Metropolitan Opera.
This whopping 30-CD box set gathers together the best of Trojan's three-disc box set series.

François Couperin ‘Le Grand’ is the most important member of the Couperin dynasty, whose elegant and trend‐setting music is known to have influenced great composers such as J.S.

It was here that he composed the Concerts Royaux and the Goûts‐Réunis (or Nouveaux Concerts) for the entertainment of the aging King Louis XIV. Each includes the florid ornamentation typical of the French Baroque and is extremely adaptable, essentially written for a treble and bass instrument and continuo.
