    Willem van Otterloo
    Residency Orchestra
    The Original Recordings 1950-1960
    Willem van Otterloo was by no means a dictatorial conductor, nor was he
    a glamour-seeker or showman. The music itself had the highest priority.
    His thorough knowledge of each and every score was legendary, and he conducted nearly all the larger works from memory. But above all he was
    a true orchestral trainer. From this legendary conductor we now have an unique document in our hands. It consists of 38 works (from a total of
    125) which where recorded for Philips in the years 1950-60 with the
    Residency Orchestra The Hague. Also there are two DGG recordings of
    Haydn symphonies from 1962. The 13 cd's are all digitally remasterd
    and a 100-page booklet is written by Otto Ketting. This box is a real
    event: here musical history is written ánd immortalized.
