Looks like a beautiful set.  I might end up getting it simply to have all of those wonderful cover designs.

Looks like Warner has licensed music from other labels, too: Francois-Xavier Roth is listed (HIP Debussy on the label Musicales Actes Sud); Cleveland/Boulez sounds like DG; and the four-hand piano music will be Armengaud/Chauzu, which is Naxos.

Who is this? I can't find any info online.

The thing I do like in this set is the choice for the front cover

The great wave off Kanagawa by the 19th century japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.  The original is at the Rijksmuseum.  It is the artist view of a Tsunami


A woman voice glides like the wind
Of black, of damp, of night
And all it touches in this flight
Suddenly is over.

Beautiful. The wave, with claws, is about to ensnare everything.

Could also be Columbia/Sony.  He recorded some Debussy with the Cleveland Orchestra for them as well.

Yes...that struck me too..

Who does not appear is Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (although the list of pianists is followed by "..."). Thus, this means that the solo piano versions of Khamma and Jeux may be new recordings, and not Bavouzet's from Chandos...

Per Christo, that Järvi is more famous than Kristjan.  I'm not so sure, but then I'm not Estonian.

Gorgeous looking set, Rafael. I’ll definitely be acquiring it once it’s released.

Looks like a new Tippett release of Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 from Brabbins and BBC Scottish SO on Hyperion:

I have tried to figure out the contents of the new 100 CD DHM box by using the info on Amazon.de to search the original albums. Most of the CDs are in alphabetical order according to composer, with the last ones dedicated to thematic compilations. The list is not complete and may have a few errors, but until the official listing shows up might still be of some use. Only a fraction of the CDs were included in the two previous DHM 50 CD boxes, but if you have bought some of the earlier DHM 10 CD boxes on specific composers or groups, there will be more overlap. I think I have about 25% of the recordings already, which still makes the new box a tempting proposition.

Disc: 1 C.P.E. Bach: Hamburger Sinfonien & Concertos
.........................
Disc: 96 Los Otros: Tinto
Disc: 97 ?
Disc: 98 Christmas Music
Disc: 99 Christmas Music - Tölzer Knabenchor

Thank you very much, I searched for such info and realised it would be quite difficult to gather it.

To the US, this will be about EUR73 all in (with VAT removed and shipping added). The Amazon US price is currently a hair under $90. So more or less similar, and both with a release date of Jan 5. It really does have a nice look.
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

The artwork on that Debussy set looks like it was done by Roger Dean. They wouldn't look out of place on a Yes album cover.

Régis Allard Clerambaut & Dandrieu: fabulous organ, excellent sound, inspired performances. The Clicquot at Houdan  on the recording sounds a bit like the Dom Bedos at Bordeaux in real life. One Dandrieu suite, and two Clerambaut, so musically not totally unsatisfying either.

Price dropped to €99,99.  Shipping to the US is set to €3.  After subtracting the VAT, this brings the total price to $102.  I'm tempted.  Of course, at that shipping rate, they would probably end up sending the package the slowest freight method possible - that's what Amazon France did when I ordered the Casadesus Edition many years ago and was charged about the same for shipping - but I'm in no hurry.

Thanks! I always mistook conductor Vallo Järvi (1923-1994) for the dynasty's - see https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Järvide_suguvõsa  founder - actually, he was just the (much) older brother of Neeme (born 1937): https://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vallo_Järvi
