RCO LIVE -- Anthology of the RCO 2000-2010 and Mahler cycle on DVD and Blu-ray

The Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra series, the first two volumes issued by Q-Disc and the rest by RCO Live, has reached the last volume, i.e. Volume 7 for 2000-2010, to be in line with the celebration of the 125th anniversary of the RCO in 2013. Many interesting Bruckner symphony concerts are included in this series so far as listed below:

No. 2    Haitink, 9/7/1959 (Vol. 2)
No. 3    Kubelik, 28/1/1959 (Vol. 2)
             Sanderling, 8/11/1996 (Vol. 6)
No. 4    Klemperer, 4/12/1947 (Vol. 1)
No. 6    Jochum, 2/11/1980 (Vol. 5)
No. 9    Giulini, 22/1/1978 (Vol. 4)

In Volume 7, the only Bruckner is Zubin Mehta's No. 8 in 2005.

Another major release for Mahlerites is the RCO Mahler cycle on DVD and Blu-ray. All are full HD live recordings with 5.0 surround sound from the 2009-2011 Mahler celebrations from Concertgebouw.

Very nice package.

    Thank you for these news. Is the detail of the Anthology of the RCO 2000-2010 Box known? I can find nowhere!
