Notes and Editorial Reviews

Claudio Abbado’s career with Deutsche Grammophon stretched back over more than four decades. He was as much a man of the theater as he was one of the greatest of all late 20th century symphonic conductors, and many of his opera recordings remain unsurpassed in the catalog. Building on the huge success of CLAUDIO ABBADO – THE SYMPHONY EDITION, comes THE OPERA EDITION: 60 CDs presenting Maestro’s complete opera recordings for Deutsche Gramophone and Decca.
