111 Years of Deutsche Grammophon

Deutsche Grammophon, arguably the most important classical label in the world, just started tweeting. And better news is that they are adding more and more music from their splendid catalog into Spotify. This box-set below will give you a good overview of DG, if you are a newcomer to classical music, great, let's start dancing to the very first track, the seductive Hungarian Dance No.5. If you are a seansoned listener, there should be many tracks in the box-set that you've missed out, even never imagined existing: like the exciting finale of Mozart's great G Minor symphony conducted by Richard Strauss.

(Spotify link, 6CDs 111tracks)

The official site of the box-set. Search for the whole DG catalog in Spotify: enter label:Deutsche-Grammophon in the search box.

P.S: It's great to see another blog that covers classical music on Spotify: Spotify Chart. Go and find more classical albums there. Happy listening and have a nice weekend.
