Following Capriccio’s founding in 1982 as a producer of LPs and tapes, the label’s first recording to turn heads was its pioneering digital Beethoven Symphonies cycle with the Dresden Philharmonic under Herbert Kegel, which was issued on CD two years later, in 1984. Several other key projects were pivotal to the label quickly establishing a reputation as a source of quality music and performances. Foremost among them, never out of the catalogue and still loved today, are the recordings featuring Sandor Végh. These were followed in the mid-nineties by those of Sir Neville Marriner who, after a long association with the Philips label, recorded widely for Capriccio, both with his Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra. Contemporaries of Mozart that have gradually appeared on the Capriccio label include Joseph Martin Kraus, François-Joseph Gossec and Jan Ladislav Dussek. Their works are performed by early music and classical period ensembles (and Capriccio favourites) such as Concerto Köln and the CPE Bach Chamber Orchestra. This 10-CD box set features the label’s most important ensembles, orchestras and conductors in repertoire that ranges from the classical period to the 20th century, the latter attaining a landmark in 2005 when Capriccio released the first complete Shostakovich Symphonies cycle on SACD with the Gürzenich Orchestra under Dmitrji Kitajenko.
