12CDs at a super value price: 3CDs of orchestral works, 4 complete operas, many rare photos in booklet.

One of the most charismatic of conductors, Carlos Kleiber would have been 80 on 3 July 2010. Here, in celebration of a great artist, are his Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon: each is a classic, and presented here in the best sound-quality. A companion box set of his complete UNITEL/DG DVDs, in a special limited edition, is also being released to mark the occasion.

The present box comprises the three CDs of orchestral works by Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert as well as his four complete opera recordings (Der Freischütz, Die Fledermaus, La Traviata and Tristan und Isolde). Here is a unique chance to offer Kleiber's Complete Recordings in a single box set at a bargain price.

Each of these recordings is a classic, each has been in the catalogue since the time of recording, all still selling amazingly well after more than 30 years. The Beethoven symphonies and the Verdi La Traviata are classics of the gramophone - two perennial bestsellers.

Orchestral recordings: Beethoven symphonies 5 and 7, Brahms symphony No.4 and Schubert symphonies 3 & 8 - all currently in The Originals, DG's premium reissues series, with top remastering quality.

Operas: Weber: Der Freischütz; Johann Strauss II: Die Fledermaus; Verdi: La Traviata; Wagner: Tristan und Isolde - all currently in The Originals, DG's premium reissues series, with top remastering quality.

Packaging: classic capbox, with strikingly modern cover and booklet including full tracklists, new booklet article by Andrew Clements, and many rare photos of Kleiber and other artists at recording sessions.
