Fritz Wunderlich's lyricism, boundless musicianship and exquisite diction made him one of the great tenors of the 20th century. In September 2016, DG will commemorate the 50th anniversary of his death with the release of Complete Studio Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon, a comprehensive 32CD box set of sacred works, opera and operetta, lieder and popular song. The collection includes Decca, Philips and Polydor recordings as well, several appearing internationally for the first time.

Oratorios & sacred music: As well as the classic recordings of Bach's Christmas Oratorio and Haydn's Creation, includes rarities such as the early (1957) Bach Easter Oratorio and Magnificat recordings on Philips.

Complete operas & opera highlights: Alongside early Monteverdi and iconic Mozart (under Jochum and Böhm), highlights from Zar and Zimmermann (Lortzing), Eugene Onegin and La Traviata. Also, for the first time the complete double album of arias on Heliodor, from Handel to Verdi, including a first release on CD of "Ist's wirklich" from the The Barber of Seville, and the first international release of the pot-pourri from Kálmán's Csárdásfürstin (The Gypsy Princess).

The complete Polydor recordings: Du bist die Welt für mich, Ein Lied geht um die Welt, Wunderlich in Wien – full of hits like  "Granada," "Be My Love," "Plaisir d'amour," "O sole mio," "Santa Lucia" and "Funiculi-Funicula"

Plus a bonus CD (first international release on CD) of early recordings (1954–57) of popular material, including two trumpet solos from Fritz Wunderlich.

"Life granted my husband Fritz Wunderlich so little time. But even if his life was so short, it was always filled with music. When I look back on it now, I wonder how it was all possible all those first nights, concerts, song recitals, festivals, new productions, world premieres and studio recordings, and all within the space of so few years. He was always wanting to learn new roles, to grow and to try out new things. His enthusiasm was hard to curb." - Eva Wunderlich
