Franz Liszt described the art of conducting as less than a task to be in evidence but rather a feat in disappearing behind the function itself. Conductors are pilots, not servants. Looking back at the past two centuries, we have been blessed with the talent of several outstanding conductors, who did not only guide their orchestras but also their listeners through beloved opuses in search of the perfect sound.

Mariss Jansons. Bernard Haitink. Seiji Ozawa. Zubin Mehta. Claudio Abbado. Daniel Barenboim.

They have led some of the most prestigious orchestras in the world, including the Berliner Philharmoniker, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. In their dedication to finding the perfect sound, they have pushed expressive possibilities to the extreme and broke new ground; whether it was artistically or stylistically by challenging old-established traditions and wearing white turtlenecks instead of a tuxedo on stage.

EuroArts’ conductors retrospective series highlights the careers of these lauded conductors with a selection of concerts illustrating the heights of creative work. All previously released elegant deluxe hardcover books are now available in an exclusive limited box edition, topped off with a previously unreleased edition dedicated to Daniel Barenboim.
