This new, complete revised edition of the Penguin Guide surveys the major classical recordings issued and reissued over the past five decades, many of which have dominated the catalogue because of their sheer excellence, irrespective of their recording dates. More comprehensive that ever before, it indicates key recordings on CD, as well as DVDs, with their extra video dimension, and enhanced SACDs, including those in surround sound. If you want the finest available version of any major classical work (including DVDs of opera and ballet) you will find it listed and acutely assessed in these pages.
Ranging from long-established recordings to the latest releases, the latest edition represents the cream of the international repertoire and has all the information you need to select the finest classical music available.
