Biggest. Box Set. EVER.
I have a special section in my music library for all my box sets. I think the biggest might be a Beatles set that contains about a dozen LPs–which, when you think about it, is pretty big. But it ain’t got nothin’ on this new Mozart collection called Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition.
This set features 200 CDs (240 hours of music) divided into solo work, symphonies and concertos, operas and various fragments. That’s 4,000 tracks.
It also comes with two books (one a biography), 33 DVDs of every single Mozart opera and a triple set of “singles.”
This blows away the previous record holder, which was an Arthur Rubenstein collection that featured just 142 discs.
One thought on “Biggest. Box Set. EVER.”
I believe the record holder was Philips Classics Records with The Complete Mozart Edition published in 1990 with a staggering 180 compact discs. Nonetheless, the new Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition has 200 CDs which is very exciting. Thank you for sharing
