German conductor and composer Wilhelm Furtwangler is widely considered to have been one of the greatest symphonic and operatic conductors of the 20th century. Furtwängler had a unique conducting technique. He saw symphonic music as creations of nature that could only be realised subjectively into sound. This is why composers such as Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner were so central to Furtwängler’s repertoire, because he identified them as great forces of nature. These 107 CDs contain all the works Furtwangler ever recorded for release on record – and the “live” recordings he made for radio broadcast. In the case of different versions of the same work having been produced (for example there are 12 recordings of Beethoven’s Eroica!.0 the best, most beautiful, or the most exciting interpretations have been chosen for this edition. In addition the numerous bonus CDs and tracks present excerpts taken from alternative recordings. Furthermore, the edition contains a DVD with a video clip featuring the famous music critic Prof. Dr. Joachim Kaiser, who provides the answer to the question: why is Wilhelm Furtwangler still the most famous conductor in the world?
