A Claudio Abbado reading room is to be opened in 2019 at the Unter den Linden Library.

It will contain 1,700 annotated scores, 1,500 CDs and more than 300 LPs and DVDs made by the late Italian conductor and will be open to scholars and students.

There’s a huge weekend feature on the legacy in the NZZ.
