Classical music is out of fashion and time. According to the publication Billboard, the best-selling CD release this year was the complete collection of musical works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, called Mozart 225, and this despite the fact that sales only started in late October.
In just a month and a half has sold a record 1.25 million copies of disks.
In a complete collection of the works included 200 disc with 240 hours of recordings as solo and orchestral performances. A complete set, according to the publication, acquired 6250 times.
This musical release was issued for a reason – it was timed to the 225th anniversary of the death of the performer, and released his label Decca Records and Deutsche Grammophon.
