Ernst von Dohnányi was for many years a little-known and unjustly neglected composer.
Chandos’ series of recordings of his orchestral works, performed by the BBC Philharmonic under Matthias Bamert, with a distinguished roster of soloists, significantly increased his public profile, and is now regarded as benchmarks for the repertoire.
This box set, at Classic Chandos price, features his most famous orchestral works and concertos, with contributions from such prestigious artists as James Ehnes, Howard Shelley, and Clifford Lantaff; a must-have for fans of Dohnányi as well as for curious newcomers to the music of this masterly composer.

"... No one offers competition for this set. Of course you can now build a Dohnányi collection from individual discs but the performance and production values in the case of this attractively priced set will have you wondering why you took the trouble."
