Deutsche Grammophon Panorama Series on Spotify

"What really are the most important works by this or that composer? What are the recordings that assure one of a definitive interpretation? Panorama, a 2-CD series, is designed to help one make a start, using as its material the treasure-house of music, performances and artists that is the DG catalogue.

Panorama steers a tour of the great composers and their very best music: works by Bach and Handel, by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, by Verdi and Wagner, by Rimsky-Korsakov and Prokofiev. Not only that, Panorama traverses the important epochs of musical history: the mysteries of Gregorian chant, the fascinating sound-world of the Renaissance, the splendours of the Baroque era." From DG's official page.

Here's the Spotify playlist: DG: Panorama Series (842 tracks, total time: 2 days) This playlist works better in Album view. My first Liszt album is the Panorama set, a great introduction indeed.

  1. This is fantastic! I was just looking for this.

    While skimming through Fred Plotkin's guide to classical music, practically all works that he listed were to be found on Spotify, except for the Panorama series, which he features most extensively.

    Thanks for the tip.
