For some time, record companies have been releasing older recordings in new CD formats. The Sony Corporation began a series called Masterworks Heritage which included famous recordings originally issued on the Columbia, then later, CBS labels. In 2013, Sony gathered a number of such recordings into a box set of 26 CDs featuring such famous musicians as Robert Casadesus, pianist, and conductors such as George Szell and Bruno Walter.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will play selections from these CDs.
