About the album

Over the past few years, Jan Willem de Vriend and The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra have made CD recordings of all the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. This box contains them all.

At an international level, Jan Willem de Vriend is more and more regarded as an outstanding conductor with a new, fresh point of view. As is his vision of Beethoven. Important classical magazines like Gramophone are enthusiastic about the series: "These are strong, thrustful performances which make sense in terms of the music in hand and the orchestra;s own character and competence.

Jan Willem de Vriend has an intense passion for music. He will never stop investigating. Curiosity and eagerness are simply part of him and the way he works. And this means that, in his hands, music from the past comes to life, time and time again. (from the linernotes of Valentine Laout)
Alle 9 symfonieën van Beethoven in één verzameling
Deze verzameling bevat alle 9 symfonieën van Ludwig van Beethoven, uitgevoerd door dirigent Jan Willem de Vriend samen met zijn Nederlands Symfonieorkest (Orkest van het Oosten).

De Vriend wordt internationaal geprezen en gezien als een uitzonderlijk dirigent. Hij heeft zijn eigen open visie op de symfonieën van Beethoven en dirigeert deze op krachtige wijze. Het gezaghebbende muziektijdschrift Gramophone typeerde de uitvoering als "These are strong, thrustful performances which make sense in terms of the music in hand and the orchestra's own character and competence."

Beethoven componeerde 9 symfonieën tussen 1799 en 1824. De 9e sluit af met de 'Ode an die Freude' beter bekend als 'Alle Menschen werden Brüder'. Op dit album uitgevoerd door de fantastische zangsolisten Annemarie Kremer, Wilke te Brummelsroete, Marcel Reijans, Geert Smit en het koor Consensus Vocalis!
Alle Neune im Spiegel der Beethoven-Zeit

Sie erhielten internationale Anerkennung von renommierten Musikkritikern und zahlreiche Preise, darunter den Supersonic Award der luxemburgischen Zeitschrift
PIZZICATO für Beethovens Neunte.



Artist(s)

Jan Willem de Vriend is the artistic director of Combattimento Consort Amsterdam and since 2006 the chief conductor and artistic director of the NetherlandsSymphony Orchestra.

Combattimento Consort Amsterdam devotes itself to the music of about 1600 to 1830. Since its founding in 1982, it has performed virtually throughout the world as well as on many CDs, DVDs and television productions.

Since De Vriend was named chief conductor in 2006, the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra has become a notable phenomenon on the Netherlands’ musical scene. It has presented semi-scenic performances of works by Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Mendelssohn. There were premieres of works by Offenbach, Say and Mahler. And by substituting historical instruments in the brass section, it has developed its own distinctive sound in the 18th- and 19th-century repertoire. Recently, the orchestra performed music by Schumann at festivals in Spain. The release of Beethoven’s complete symphonies, conducted by De Vriend, is a big project which starts with the release of this current CD. Also the orchestra's long Mahler tradition is being continued in recordings and tours.

De Vriend has been a guest conductor with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, the Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic, the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, The Hague Philharmonic and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, as well as orchestras in Germany, Sweden and Australia. He is often invited to conduct both in the Netherlands and abroad. He has engagements pending, for example, with The Hague Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra as well as orchestras in China, Germany, Austria and Italy.

The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra is an orchestra with passion, commitment and virtuosity. The orchestra serves the province of Overijssel with concert series in Enschede, Hengelo, Zwolle and Deventer. Another important role for the orchestra is accompanying De Nationale Reisopera andprovincial choral societies. Working with top musicians from all over the world has contributed towards the orchestra achieving its aim of bringing concerts of the highest quality to a broad public. Important conductors for the orchestra were Ed Spanjaard, Rudolf Barshai, Martin Panteleev, Mark Shanahan, Vasili Petrenko and Otto Tausk. Jaap Van Zweden made an indelible impression during his period as chief conductor and set the orchestra well and truly on the map. He will return frequently as guest conductor. Many great international soloists have worked with the orchestra – Gidon Kremer, Natalia Gutman, Heinrich Schiff, Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Charlotte Margiono to name a few.
