The head of a musical dynasty, Neeme Järvi is one of today's most highly respected maestros. He conducts the world's most prominent orchestras and works alongside soloists of the highest caliber. A prolific recording artist, he has amassed a discography of nearly 500 recordings.
Over his long and highly successful career he has held positions with orchestras across the world including Principal Conductor Emeritus of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. Under the leadership of Järvi, 1982-2004, the orchestra made a number of international tours and around a hundred recordings, and established itself as one of the foremost orchestras in Europe. In 1997, the Gothenburg Symphony was appointed as the National Orchestra of Sweden. The Yellow Label proudly celebrates the greatest musical partnerships of our age with a beautiful capbox featuring eight original albums with original jackets.
"The sound is superb. The balance is natural and lifelike, the strings are richly sonorous in sustained writing, beautifully transparent and light the pianissimo passages; the winds are expertly placed and not spot lit and the brass and percussion have splendid body and depth. The playing throughout is as committed as one could wish: the orchestra which Nielsen often visited in the early part of the century have this music in their blood. They give of their best for Neeme Järvi." – Gramophone
