The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and RCO Live are proud to present The Radio Legacy, a massive CD box set totalling 152 CDs and a booklet. Never before has an overview of the recording history of the Concertgebouw Orchestra been so complete.

At the heart of The Radio Legacy are all seven volumes of the Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, supplemented by the CD compilations dedicated to Willem Mengelberg, Eduard van Beinum, Bernard Haitink and Riccardo Chailly, and more recent recordings with Mariss Jansons. The Radio Legacy offers a wide selection of radio recordings by the Concertgebouw Orchestra on 152 CDs (fortunately accompanied by a clear index!). The CD box set is the culmination of years of work by compilers Daniel Esser – cellist with the RCO – and producer/music director Louis Collette. Drawing on the recordings in the Dutch public broadcasting network archives, they set out to make a selection that does justice to the unique history of the orchestra starting in 1926, the year from which its oldest surviving recordings date.

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 recent recordings with Mariss Jansons. Drawing on the wealth of recordings in the Dutch 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.

Press quotes

‘… 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)

‘One cannot help being swept away by the beauties found on these 14 discs; there are only about a dozen less-than-stellar items among the 41 performances. Bring on Volume 6 (1990–2000), before CDs disappear!’
– James H. North, Fanfare (on Anthology, Vol. 5)

‘Ten Glorious Years… the actual listening process has proved endlessly stimulating…. Viewed overall this latest Concertgebouw [Orchestra] box has turned out to be a real education’
– James H. North, Fanfare (on Anthology, Vol. 4)

‘A great listen, then, possibly the most adventurous so far in a series that is fast establishing itself as a CD institution. Long may it continue.’
– Rob Cowan, Gramophone (on Anthology, Vol. 3)
