Now that Decca and Deutsche Grammophon, among others, are all part of Universal, we have seen some interesting things happen, and not all of them bad. What I'm referring to in this case is the new "Original Masters" Limited Edition Box Set series. Finally, the classical music world has taken a page out of the jazz reissue handbook -- put out a quality product featuring rare recordings but make its availability limited, and people will snatch it up. In the "Original Masters" series, first DG and now Decca have each reissued five box sets, of 4 to 7 CDs each, in distinguished, space-saving slim paper boxes, though the style of packaging is different. The DG sets feature 50s style graphics design on their covers, while the Decca ones have a distinctive rainbow/spectrum pattern on the spines and banners, and a black-and-white photo of the artist in question on the face of the box.

Wilhelm Kempff Complete 1950's Concerto Recordings (2003)

This particular set brings back Wilhelm Kempff's Complete Concerto Recordings from the 1950s for DG. There are some real gems here, including his first Beethoven PC Cycle with Paul Van Kempen and the Berlin Philharmonic, Mozart Piano Concertos Nos. 9 & 15 with Karl Munchinger, Brahms' PC No. 1 with Franz Konwitschny, the Schumann with Josef Krips and the London Symphony, and both Liszt Concertos with Anatole Fistoulari and the LSO. I should mention that since all of the Concertos were recorded in the early 50s, they are all in mono, but still sound lovely. Well, I guess the consolidation of the music industry isn't so bad after all, as long as I can look forward to more reissues like this.
