Dear ArkivMusic Customer,

This week at ArkivMusic, we celebrate one of the giants of opera in this 200th anniversary year of the birth of Giuseppe Verdi. In honor of the occasion, Decca has produced a truly special boxed set:

Bach: St. Matthew Passion / Kozena, Padmore, Rattle
Live from Berlin's Philharmonie comes this enormously moving (NPR) concert led by Sir Simon Rattle of one of Bach's greatest sacred works, staged by Peter Sellars and featuring a starry cast that includes Magdalena Kozená, Mark Padmore, and Thomas Quasthoff.
$54.99 – 2 DVDs + Blu-ray + Digital Concert Pass!

This luxury edition includes 30 complete operas along with arias, songs, and sacred works; chamber and piano pieces; orchestral, ballet, and choral works; plus a whole host of rarities and discoveries.

It goes without saying that such a once-in-a-lifetime collection of the finest recordings from Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, Philips, and EMI features the world's greatest singers and conductors. An informative essay giving an overview of Verdi’s life and career, synopses in English, French, and German, and full production details and cast lists in two hardback books complete the set.

This is a box that no opera lover will want to be without.

This is also the 200th anniversary year of Richard Wagner, and Deutsche Grammophon's recently issued box of Wagner's Complete Operas stands as a tremendous tribute to this titan of German opera and another must-have for the opera lover's library.
43-Disc Set On Sale Now for $74.99!

As always, I thank you for your support and love of classical music.
