Orpheus Chamber Orchestra - The Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon [SET]

Product Type: 55 CD Boxset

The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1972, is unique in many ways: unconventional interpretations, outstanding programmes, an extraordinary level of flexibility and transparency of sound and not least directed democratically by the orchestra members in collective leadership.

This 55 CD edition presents a complete survey of Orpheus's discography on Deutsche Grammophon. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of a world-famous chamber orchestra, it features:

FEATURES:

  • outstanding programmes and illustrious recordings
  • CD sleeves presenting the original cover art
  • the first international release of their Mendelssohn "Italian" Symphony recording
  • booklet including hitherto unseen material from the orchestra's archives

"With musicians as fiercely independent as the Orpheus players,

The formation of the ORPHEUS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA in 1972 was facilitated by the zeitgeist: the anti-establishment values of the protests against the American war in Vietnam, the cooperative spirit and therefore the rising ideal of collective artistic leadership. Julian Fifer, cellist and co-founder explains: "Orpheus was created at a time when food co-ops and communal living came into vogue." The orchestra's philosophy of collective and democratic leadership - which extends from repertoire selection to rehearsal to its social activity - has from its formation through today shaped its development.

The intriguing sound culture of Orpheus, especially of the string section, is often explained as a result of the cooperative mindset of the orchestra and its artistic process of rehearsing. Usually a core group of three musicians plus a rotating concertmaster form the musical interpretation of one piece, develop the basic concept, and serve as moderators and facilitators of the ideas coming from the orchestra's players during a rehearsal. All members bear an imminent responsibility for the musical interpretations. Not only the orchestra members, but also outstanding record producers have formed the sound culture: In the first place, the legendary producer Wolf Erichson did an excellent job in capturing Orpheus' extraordinary level of flexibility and transparency of sound on tape.

Borne of its partnership with Deutsche Grammophon, important milestones are the striking recordings of Mozart and Haydn, lauded albums such as Schoenberg's Chamber Symphonies, pieces by Charles Ives, Stravinsky's Shadow Dances, the Rossini Overtures, the Baroque Encores and Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Incredible ensemble playing is matched by remarkable soloists such as Charles Neidich and William Purvis from the orchestra, and also in collaborations with Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer, Mischa Maisky, Jan Lisiecki and Gil Shaham
