Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart made a surprise musical comeback in 2016, landing the biggest-selling CD release of the year.

The box set ‘Mozart 225: The New Complete Edition’ has sold 1.25 million CDs since its debut on October 28 by Universal Music Group, Billboard reports.

The 200-disc collection is an individually numbered limited edition. It was released to mark the 225th anniversary of the classical composer's death, and features 600 soloists and 60 different orchestras. The box set includes all of his completed works, including, for the first time, his Handel and Bach arrangements.
