Big in Europe is the forty-second album by Klaus Schulze, released in three volumes over three years. Taking in consideration the previously released multi-disc box sets (Silver Edition, Historic Edition, Jubilee Edition, Contemporary Works I, and Contemporary Works II), it could be viewed as Schulze's one hundred and third album. This series of volumes chronicles Klaus Schulze's European tour with Lisa Gerard in 2009. [1]

Volume 1 (Warsaw)[edit]

The first volume of Big in Europe was released on November 29, 2013, and contains the entire performance in Warsaw, Poland on September 17, 2009, a concert dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland during World War II.[2] In addition to the CD, two DVDs are also included, the first duplicating the audio disc, and the second containing a documentary titled "Moogomentary". At this event, a promotional disc was available, Hommage à Polska, containing a new studio Klaus Schulze and Lisa Gerard track, not included on this release.[3]
