Format: Audio CD
Now that Decca and Deutsche Grammophon, among others, are all part of Universal, we have seen some interesting things happen, and not all of them bad. What I'm referring to in this case is the new "Original Masters" Limited Edition Box Set series. Finally, the classical music world has taken a page out of the jazz reissue handbook -- put out a quality product featuring rare recordings but make its availability limited, and people will snatch it up. In the "Original Masters" series, first DG and now Decca have each reissued five box sets, of 4 to 7 CDs each, in distinguished, space-saving slim paper boxes, though the style of packaging is different. The DG sets feature 50s style graphics design on their covers, while the Decca ones have a distinctive rainbow/spectrum pattern on the spines and banners, and a black-and-white photo of the artist in question on the face of the box.

This particular set brings back Sir Georg Solti's first recordings as a pianist and conductor, from 1947-1958, for Decca. The first two discs are mostly Solti on piano with violinist Georg Kulenkampff on the three Brahms Violin Sonatas and Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata, recorded in 1947-48. Rounding out disc two is Violinist Mischa Elman performing Beethoven's Violin Concerto with Solti conducting the London Philharmonic from 1955. Disc three features Solti conducting the Israel Philharmonic in Schubert's 5th Symphony from 1958 (the collection's only stereo recording), and Bartok's Dance Suite (1952) and Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta (1955) again with the LPO. The final disc showcases Solti with the Bayerisches Staatsorcheter in Kodaly's Hary Janos Suite and excerpts from Richard Strauss' "Elektra.
