The second album from Franz Welser-Möst on The Cleveland Orchestra's in-house label pairs Schubert's "Great" C Major Symphony with music by the 20th-century Austrian-American composer Ernst Křenek. These recordings serve as a unique document of the Orchestra's music-making, having been made only days before the coronavirus pandemic forced the temporary shuttering of Severance Hall.

Schubert has long been an important part of Welser-Möst's musical life, and The Cleveland Orchestra Music Director has described the composer as a master of melody, harmony, and emotional weight. All of these characteristics are on full display in the majestic "Great" C Major Symphony, which dates from 1825 and was premiered by Felix Mendelssohn in 1839. Born in Vienna in 1900, Ernst Křenek began composing in the aftermath of the First World War before emigrating to the US in his late thirties. His music encompasses a variety of styles and he explored many of the stylistic innovations that arose during the 20th century.

The suite "Statisch und ekstatisch", subtitled "10 movements for chamber orchestra", is music of contrast and extremes, juxtaposing moments of strictly serial music with freely composed material.

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!
