The Deutsche Grammophon Westminster Records box set gives a cross-section of Westminster’s activity in all genres, from solo piano recordings (Jörg Demus, Paul Badura-Skoda, Clara Haskil, Egon Petri) to complete operas (Handel’s Rodelinda with Teresa Stich-Randall, Maureen Forrester, Alexander Young, conducted by Brian Priestman, receiving its CD premiere) to orchestral recordings by the legendary conductors Hermann Scherchen and Artur Rodzinski.

Many of these albums have never been released internationally before on CD or have been deleted for many years. Westminster Records was an American classical music record label, founded in 1949. Its trademark was Big Ben and its slogan “natural balance”, referring to its single microphone technique in recording music, similar to Mercury Records’ Living Presence series.
