Abbado: The Complete Deutsche Grammophon Recordings
Claudio Abbado / Wiener Philharmoniker
Claudio Abbado represents an entire era in the history of the Vienna Philharmonic. Between 1965 and 1997 he conducted 320 concerts and 27 opera performances at the Salzburg Festival. When we include the 173 performances at the Vienna State Opera, we arrive at over 500 appearances, which does not include numerous recordings. Through the earnestness of his commitment to art and his unfailing attempts to reach the highest artistic goals, Abbado set standards that no one can ignore.
