Ever since Beethoven wrote his last piano sonata and called it "Opus 111", the number 111 has enjoyed certain kudos in musical circles, and 2009 marks the 111th anniversary of Deutsche Grammophon. Over 11 decades, the label's philosophy has always been “the greatest recordings by the greatest artists in the world” and now they showcase this with this incredible 55 CD box set.

This unique collection forms DG’s major release in its 111th anniversary celebrations. The limited edition box set gathers together many landmark recordings, from the past to the present. Most of them appear complete, as originally programmed, in their original cover art and several include additional material.

It is a true Library of Music, Artists and Recordings extending from Abbado to Zimerman, Monteverdi to Pärt, Furtwängler to Dudamel-- there’s never been anything quite like it before. The opulent deluxe box with hinged lid opens up to reveal the neatly stacked contents of 51 "original jacket! albums and an accompanying 150-page booklet.
