Scheherazade on DG









When I was young I learned to refer to this company as DGG – Deutsche Gramophon Gesellschaft. Nowadays I think of it as DG. I have always loved their overall cover design, with the large brass plaque at the top. Other companies have flirted with having an overall design, like Mercury ca. 1960 with the Stereophonic stripe at the top or High Fidelity stripe at the bottom. But no one else used the same overall design for so many years. Most DG covers are the usual zachn for classical covers – pictures of the composer, or the conductor or soloist, or reproductions of historic paintings. But sometimes they hire some great illustrators for their covers, like Wandrey. One of these is signed Klaus Steffens.
