Sep 30, 2009 News Furtwängler in the Charts

The Edition Wilhelm Furtwängler with the complete RIAS recordings of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Wilhelm Furtwängler is currently breaking records.

Since the release of the Edition Wilhelm Furtwängler in May 2009 …

  • ... the album was in such high demand that it made it into the top 20 classic charts. In August the album held position 16 in the German sales charts (media control).

  • … the trade press could not contain their enthusiasm! The consequence are many prestigious awards (e. g. Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Supersonic Award, Diapason d’Or, Choc de Classica etc.) and more than 50 excellent international reviews from important media around the globe (Arte, BBC Radio 3, Classica, Deutsche Welle, ClassicsToday, Diapason, Die Welt, Fono Forum, Gramophone, Kulturspiegel, Neue Zürcher Zeitung etc.).

  • … the podcast “Remastering historic recordings“ which explains the general process of remastering using the Furtwängler-Edition as an example was downloaded from our homepage more than 1.500 times.
We are very happy about these outstanding successes and feel confirmed in our release policy.
