DG Catalogue & Web Shop
The Westminster catalogue, recorded between 1949 and 1970, is still of the utmost significance, technically and artistically.
The DG Westminster Legacy 40-Cd Box box 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.
Number 1 for "Beethoven 9" App
Bestowed with the App Store's coveted "Editor's Choice" in the USA App Store, the free version of DG’s "Beethoven 9" app, a partnership with Touch Press, the acclaimed app developer of The Elements, became one of the most downloaded apps worldwide in the App Store last week, its first week of release. With now nearly 800,000 downloads, the app was a top ten hit in 3 countries last week, including the USA, Canada and South Korea, and was the no.1 free music app in 7 countries, while reaching the top ten in 18.
The app has received a large number of reviews both by consumers in the App Store as well as in the press. Damian Thompson from the UK current affairs magazine The Spectator commented: “my iPad sucked me deeper into Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony than I thought possible”.
In November 2013 the app has won the UK FutureBook Innovation Award in the category "Best Reference Digital App".
