New Co-Edition of EuroArts and CLASSICA

Do you know why there was a wild brawl at the premiere of Stravinsky's "Sacre du printemps"? Why did Schubert never intend to finish his famous “Unfinished” Symphony in h-Minor. What is the fate behind Beethoven's "Symphony of Fate"? And what “surprise” did Haydn have in mind with his symphony of the same name?

Expect to be enlightened with these and many other exciting answers to intriguing questions about some of the most famous works of classical music by the documentary series Masters of Classical Music. Renowned experts take a closer, always entertaining, but somewhat distinct, look at 20 of the most distinguished symphonic oeuvres, performed by some of the best artists and orchestras in the world. A "must have" for all fans of classical music, beginners and explorers alike.

Each of the 20 episodes offers an instructive introduction to the origins of each work and its musical structure. The viewer is guided through the pieces with prominent interpreters, conductors and musicologists providing expert insights into each work. Excellent musical interpretations underlie the cinematic concert guide. The concert broadcasts feature first-class interpretations by famous classical musicians and internationally renowned orchestras. Featured among others are Daniel Barenboim, Claudio Abbado, Pierre Boulez, Mariss Jansons, Martha Argerich, Gil Shaham, Berliner Philharmoniker, Lucerne Festival Orchestra, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig and Wiener Philharmoniker.

Now available on DVD and Blu-ray Disc!
