Mozart died 225 years ago. He was only 35. “Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition” was released on October 28, 2016. The box-set, which contains 240 hours of music in total, consists of 200 CDs.
Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition left behind names such as Kanye West, Beyonce and Drake and reached its highest sales figure of the year. The box-set shifted 1.25 million total CDs since its release just five short weeks ago.
UMG’s Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition director Paul Moseley said:
“It is wonderful to see the reaction to this box set, which is the fruit of years of scholarship, planning and curation.
Mozart’s immortal melodies, no less than The Beatles or Abba, are in some way part of all our lives – and this Edition is the perfect way to celebrate that on his 225th anniversary.”
Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition sells for more than $500 on Amazon.
