"... a fine recording and a brace of performances which has much to recommend it ... de Vriend does have a way of making these symphonies sound fresh and exciting however, even a little dangerous, in a different and good way."
- MusicWeb International

This album contains refreshing new interpretations of two Beethoven symphonies from conductor Jan Willem de Vriend and his Netherlands Symphony Orchestra. De Vriend is a fast rising star as a symphonic conductor and this third volume in his complete Beethoven symphony cycle is a fine musical signature with which he and his musicians perpetuate themselves. The conductor has been working on this intensively for the past 20 years, immersing himself in the life of Beethoven to gain the best possible understanding of the composer and his roots. To this end, de Vriend has conducted the music of Beethoven, of people who composed for him and of his contemporaries.

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!
