Editorial Reviews

This seventh and final installment of the Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra covers the years 2000 to 2010, a rich period in the orchestra's history largely characterized by the changing perspectives of a new century. Indeed, it was in 2004 that Riccardo Chailly relinquished his position as chief conductor, to be replaced by the Latvian maestro Mariss Jansons, who shifted the orchestra's focus more towards Tchaikovsky, Richard Strauss and Shostakovich. A generation of orchestral players retired and were succeeded by a group of outstanding young musicians, most of them hailing from outside the Netherlands, resulting in a growing internationalization of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Also in this period, the launch of the orchestra's own in-house record label, RCO Live, breathed new life into its rich recording tradition.

Only 2 reviews. No wonder there is so much saying classical music is dead - that is until the younger generation eventually discover what good music is. I like the quote from the Composers Datebook "remember all music is once new". I discovered Live at the Concertgecouw radio broadcast over a decade ago, and I was so glad that it helped me discover so much relatively contemporary "classical" works that are seldom performed even with the leading symphony orchestras in the US. During my short visit to Amsterdam I was fortunate to able to attend a concert at the Concertgebouw only minutes before the start. If you like classical music and like me, wanting more challenge than the usual "played-to-death" pieces this is a good box set. RCO compiles a box set like this every 10 years. I have been waiting for the release of the super box set that contains 7 decades (all the box sets RCO ever released) to no avail. I finally decided to buy the two of the most recent decades. I love both. My taste of classical is mostly post romantic. I cannot withstand anything baroque and those before it while I recognize and respect them as the development of Western music.

I am so sad to find out just now the 7-decade super box set is now available :-(

I recently came across this when assessing whether to get the BPO Centenary Edition, and had a hunch this was a good series. Everything about it is a throw back to the days when classical recordings were a premium product. Firstly, the packaging, including the cardsleeves are sturdy and durable. Each sleeve has the full track listing on it for that CD, something many other anthologies have dispensed with. The booklet is glossy paper and thick, so it will age well. Each CDs pieces are briefly introduced in a range of languages. The performances themselves, I have listened through the first 2 discs recorded in 2000, and was very impressed by the sound quality and the performance standards. Even Lorin Maazel's Symfonia Domestica on CD1 was a richly Viennese performance with great articulation. I will treasure listening to this set for many hours to come.

Wow!
This anthology is not filled with the usual warhorse classical selections. It is filled with fantastic performances of many 20th century gems rarely found or heard from many great orchestras. Szymanowski's violin concerto was as thrilling to hear as Beethoven's 9th.
Love it!
