Should this item be out of stock at the time of your order, we would expect to be able to supply it to you within 2 - 4 weeks.

Ever since Beethoven wrote his last piano sonata and called it opus 111, the number 111 has enjoyed certain kudos in musical circles - of which we are proud to take advantage, as Deutsche Grammophon celebrates its 111th anniversary in 2009.

111 years is a lot of history, and we have tried to squeeze into an array of products - both on CD and on DVD - the "flavour" of the label, and to give an idea of its culture over 11 decades. The philosophy has always been "The greatest recordings by the greatest artists in the world" - something clearly borne by the releases now on offer, both in terms of sound quality and artistic merit.

In parallel with The Collector's edition, 111 classic tracks offers a single track from each of the 51 principal artists featured there, plus 60 more artists who have contributed to Deutsche Grammophon's 111 year history, right up to the present day. The roster runs from Caruso and Richard Strauss at the beginnings of recording history to recent arrivals Alice Sara Ott and Yuja Wang.

This 6-CD, limited edition, Digistak is a fabulous compilation comprising of 6 trays bound together to form a digistak (like a mega digipak) which fits neatly into a slipcase; 24-page tracklist booklet.
