Nikolaus Harnoncourt rose from a cellist at the back of a Vienna orchestra to one of the most celebrated conductors of the latter half of the 20th century, and certainly one of the greatest living conductors.  His talent for getting the most out of an ensemble has resulted in a discography of over 500 recordings, including a lifetime contract with Teldec.  Some of the many ensembles have included the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and his own Concentus Musicus Wien.  The series below compiles great performances by composer, but please explore the more the 240 recordings from Nikolaus Harnoncourt at ClassicsOnline.

"For me," says Harnoncourt, "to play together and in equal pitch is not a goal. For me, the rehearsal starts with the content of a piece - what it means, how it can change the listener. I was an orchestral musician for 17 years and what I missed was the question 'why?'. I wanted to know why Bruno Walter asked me to play like this . . . In those days, musicians were slaves, but my musicians are partners and they have to know about the conception. This is my way of working." -- Nikolaus Harnoncourt in an interview with Norman Lebrecht in 2000.
