America is often associated with bold, celebratory and self-confident music – yet many masterpieces either by American composers or inspired by its land are altogether of more subtle character. The three works on this album are all quite introspective in character despite some exuberant episodes; and each reflects in their different way upon the land once known as the New World. In the 19th and 20th centuries, America represented for those who left the Old World – meaning in most cases Europe – and sailed across the Atlantic the hope of starting a new life unshackled from the past and its politics. America was for many a land of dreams, and it is this reflective and dream-like quality which unites these three otherwise quite different compositions.

Christoph König and SEL have released two critically acclaimed albums on Rubicon RCD1020 Mehul Symphony No.1 & Beethoven Symphony No.3 'Eroica', and RCD1025 Schubert Symphony No.9 'Great' & Berio 'Rendering' after Schubert Symphony No.10. Dvořák's evergreen 'New World' symphony is programmed on this new album with two quintessentially American works by the maverick Charles Ives, and Aaron Copland's 'Quiet City' written in 1939 as incidental music to a play by Irwin Shaw. The play was a failure, but Copland returned to the score making this concert version.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
