No collection of recordings from the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra’s rich history can offer the listener a truly complete overview. But the present CD box set certainly comes closer than any before it. The Radio Legacy is a compilation of the seven part Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the four box sets devoted to the orchestra’s chief conductors Willem Mengelberg, Eduard van Beinum, Bernard Haitink and Riccardo Chailly, and also featuring more h public broadcasting network archives, the selection does justice to the unique history of the orchestra. Repertoire, performance, conductors, soloists, and recording quality were the criteria which, proved to be decisive. Indeed, the compilers have worked ‘with the awareness that the making of choices brings with it the duty to showcase as many aspects of this history as possible’.

This CD set can thus be seen as an important supplement to the orchestra’s musical legacy as reflected by the many releases on record labels over the years. Included in the luxurious box set is ´125 Years in Silent Pictures´, a photo book featuring archival and specially made new photos capturing the orchestra´s history from the very first beginning up to 2013. An index book focusing on
composers, conductors and soloists will guide the listener through this vast collection of recordings. The Radio Legacy is a limited edition: no more than 1000 copies are available.

"… More Music From the Dutch Dream Team... I can well imagine this set providing as much pleasure and musical stimulation as its six equally nourishing predecessors. A listening experience to savour." Rob Cowan, Gramophone (on Anthology, Vol. 7)

"Hats off to the Royal Concertgebouw [Orchestra]: this ... crowns what is without doubt the most impressive (certainly the most representative) recorded retrospective of any orchestra ever undertaken on disc." Rob Cowan, Gramophone (on Anthology, Vol. 6)

152 CDs, liner notes and index book + photo book
