With the great demand for the LP version of our internationally successful Furtwängler 12 CD boxed set (aud. 21.403), audite now presents a selection of recordings in LP format for audiophile vinyl enthusiasts. Containing compositions by Beethoven, Bruckner, Schubert, Brahms and Wagner, the LP boxed set (comprising 14 LPs on 180g vinyl) presents principal works of the CD boxed set.

These RIAS recordings are documents of historical value: The majority of the concerts given by Wilhelm Furtwängler and the Berlin Philharmonic between 1947 and 1954 were recorded by the RIAS Berlin. The original tapes from the RIAS archives have been made available for the first time for this edition so these recordings also offer unsurpassed technical quality. The recordings document a major part of Furtwängler’s late oeuvre as a conductor.

Release date in Germany is November 18.
