Mariss Jansons was one of the most important conductors of our time, celebrated worldwide and held in the highest regard – all the more so since his unexpected death on December 1, 2019. „Mariss Jansons – The Edition“, comprising 70 recordings in a box set in representative LP format, documents the final phase of his life and career – his work as chief conductor of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Bavarian Radio Chorus between 2003 and 2019. Predominantly live recordings from Munich, Tokyo, Vienna, New York, Waldsassen and the Vatican enable listeners to experience for themselves musical highlights that are as moving as they are exciting. The 57 CDs (15 of which are being released for the first time on CD), 11 SACDs and 2 DVDs contain a remarkably diverse repertoire, ranging from symphonic music and great choral works to opera, and from the First Viennese School to 20th century classical music. „Mariss Jansons – The Edition“ contains works by a broad range of composers – including complete cycles of the symphonies of Beethoven, Brahms and Mahler respectively. It is supplemented by fascinating rehearsal recordings that bear witness to Jansons‘ trusting artistic collaboration with the musicians in his orchestra, together with a large-format, approx. 72-page-long booklet containing background information, essays, an interview and a detailed track listing.

Mariss Jansons was held in high esteem by the musicians of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks – more, perhaps, than any other conductor. He was loved by his Munich audience, and adored by fans in international concert halls from Tokyo to New York.
