More details

This box set embraces five historic performances from the BBC Proms by some of the world’s greatest artists. From the very first season of Promenade Concerts in 1895, the Proms has championed the finest classical music. This unmissable anthology features the legendary partnership of Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in music by Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Debussy, and Garrick Ohlsson’s impassioned account of Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto.

Gennadi Rozhdestvensky and Yuri Temirkanov lead two deeply Russian programmes, and characteristic Viennese waltzes – including The Blue Danube – are executed with exuberance, good humour and panache by three conductors well suited to the genre.
