"To my ear, in the right conditions and with the right conductor, it is the best orchestra in the world..." - John Culshaw, Decca Chief Producer

The set includes three complete symphonic cycles: BEETHOVEN (Monteux, Kleiber, Schmidt-Isserstedt, Solti, Abbado); BRAHMS - Mehta, Schuricht, Bohm, Kertesz; the VPO's only BRUCKNER cycle (Abbado, Solti, Stein, Mehta, Maazel, Bohm), plus classic recordings from almost every other famous conductor of the day, including Walter, Krauss, Reiner, Szell, Karajan, Kubelik, Bernstein, Kondrashin, Dohnanyi, Haitink, Mackerras and Chailly. The orchestra's standard repertoire is fully covered, including the Strauss family and lighter music in classic recordings from Knappertsbusch, Krips, Dorati and Boskovsky.

PLUS - A luxury 200 page book including the original Decca LP sleeves, many archival photographs, 5 major articles and much more AND Bonus CD of Khachaturian and Leimer performing their own works.
