Limited Edition Box Set!

Now, marking two 90th anniversaries – Decca90 and Bernard Haitink's 90th birthday – Decca Classics presents a deluxe CD + Blu-ray Audio editions which stand as testimony to one of the most successful conductor-artist partnerships of the past 100 years.

Bernard Haitink's complete survey of the Bruckner symphonies set the standard for subsequent recordings of the repertoire whilst continuing a living tradition in Amsterdam. 
 
Beyond the work of an orchestra and conductor in a golden period, these iconic cycles owe much to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw itself – one of the great temples of culture – and further gained from the vision of Decca's engineers who created a recorded sound of such striking depth, detail and realism.  All these elements combined to attract countless new listeners to Bruckner's music.
