Paul von Klenau’s grandiose Ninth Symphony in eight movements was his last major work, an extraordinary fusion of a Requiem with Latin text and a traditional symphony. The manuscript then lay unknown for more than 50 years until it appeared in the 2001 discovery of a large collection of Klenau manuscripts in Vienna. It wasn't until March 2014, however, after a thorough editing by The Royal Library in Copenhagen, that it received its first performance by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Schønwandt. This world premiere recording features the Danish National Chamber Choir and four soloists joining the DNSO on the full symphony; a magnificent opus of both tonal, atonal and even 12 tone passages, very far removed from the style that dominated the post-Nielsen Danish music of the 1940s.

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!
