Sir Colin Davis

This limited edition box set is a unique collection of 13-discs is the 100th release on LSO Live. The collection pays tribute to not only Sir Colin’s work with LSO Live, but more specifically his relationship with the London Symphony Orchestra through the decades, until his death in April 2013.

The collection features previously unreleased material from the LSO Live archive, including two much loved recordings on high-resolution SACD Hybrid for the first time - Dvorak Symphony No 9 and Berlioz Symphonie fantastique. Never before seen private correspondence and photos from Sir Colin’s archives accompany the discs.

The anthology is completed with a bonus DVD documentary by Reiner Moritz. This portrait includes his last public statements, and contributions from Sir David Attenborough, Sir Simon Rattle and Roger Wright. The documentary highlights his work in masterclasses, opera, concerts and to-camera talk which reveals the man behind the musician.
