Andris Nelsons has joined forces with the Wiener Philharmoniker, recording Ludwig van Beethoven’s nine symphonies for Deutsche Grammophon. The release of their new album marks the start of the Yellow Label’s celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth next year.

Beethoven has been central to Andris Nelsons’ work since he began his career in the early 2000s. The Latvian conductor garnered rave reviews for his 2013-14 Beethoven cycle with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and scored critical acclaim for more recent Beethoven performances as Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Leipzig Gewandhausorchester. In March and April this year he joined the Wiener Philharmoniker for a series of concerts including works by the composer in Vienna, Hamburg, and Hanover, and for the final recording sessions at the Vienna Musikverein of their complete symphony cycle for Deutsche Grammophon.

Over the past century the symphonies have been recorded as a complete cycle more than 160 times by an array of legendary conductors, whose ranks Andris Nelsons now joins. The Wiener Philharmoniker itself has recorded all nine works six times as well as participating in multi-orchestra cycles. Nelsons is adamant, however, that no matter how many times they are performed or recorded, these works retain their freshness.

“There are so many amazing recordings of the Beethoven symphonies from the past, but I believe his music always has something to say about the present day. Being able to perform and record these works of genius again and again allows musicians to emphasize just how real they are for their own generation and for future generations. It’s music for our time and all time.”

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!
