This release of Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Much Ado About Nothing and Sinfonietta follows Ondine’s release of the Symphony in F sharp and the Tänzchen im alten Stil (ODE 1182-2).

The complete incidental music from Much Ado About Nothing (Viel Lärm um Nichts) is a world premiere recording. It was premiered in 2012 under the direction of John Storgards. Originally written for chamber orchestra, it is performed here by symphony orchestra.

The Sinfonietta was first performed by Felix Weingartner and the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Richly orchestrated melodies, dreamy music and an imposing finale characterize the work.

John Storgards, one of Finland’s most exceptional artists, has built a worldwide reputation in recent years. Storgards is Chief Conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and was appointed Principal Guest Conductor of BBC Philharmonic Orchestra in 2012.

Technical Notes:
This album was mastered using our 2xHD proprietary system. In order to achieve the most accurate reproduction of the original recording we tailor our process specifically for each project, using a selection from our pool of state-of-the-art audiophile components and connectors. The process begins with a transfer to analog from the original DXD master, using cutting edge D/A converters. The analog signal is then sent through a hi-end tube pre-amplifier before being recorded directly in DXD using the MSB Platinum Studio ADC plus. All connections used in the process are made of OCC silver cable. DSD and 192kHz/24Bit versions are separately generated, directly from the analog signal.
2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme.
