Digital Booklet
"... the text is celebratory rather than solemn and one certainly senses it with this conductor’s enthusiastic, energetic approach. If I were purchasing a single disc of the Lobgesang, this would be my choice ..." - Fanfare "... de Vriend paces the various sections of the finale shrewdly. I particularly appreciate the energy he brings to the music, even when the tempo is not fast; there is no stuffiness or sentimentality about this ... this is a successful launch for de Vriend’s cycle. The recorded sound is very good ..." - MusicWeb International Conductor Jan Willem de Vriend and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra embark on a new adventure with this release: the complete cycle of Mendelssohn's symphonies. De Vriend got copies of the original publications of these works, complete with fingerings and bowings, and studied these editions closely, learning much about how music was played at that time. Through this, he and his orchestra more fully assimilated Mendelssohn.

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!
