Figures just in from Universal show that ‘Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition’ has sold 1.25 million CDs globally in just 5 weeks since it was released – more than releases by Drake, Rihanna and David Bowie.
Weighing 12kg, ‘Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition’ is believed to be the biggest ever box set dedicated to a single composer.
