Wojciech Rajski conducts the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra for this recording of Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

With this release of Beethoven’s magnificent 9th symphony, the TACET cycle of Beethoven symphonies on SACD is complete. The inspiration behind this performance is Friedrich Schiller’s quote, “All men will be brothers.” Whether that means a utopia or an illusion, conductor Wojciech Rajski attempts to make this a reality with his Polish Chamber Philharmonic and the Schola Cantorum Gedanensis choir. The soloists featured on this recording hail from all corners of the globe, and include Bomi Lee from Korea, Agnieszka Rehlis and Krystian Adam Krzeszowiak from Poland, and Tareq Nazmi from Egypt.

Of this stereo version, Remy Franck writes in Pizzicato: “...there is no false solemnity here, just happy, untroubled upbeat joy...” between the incredible interpretation and the remarkable sound quality, this release is a must-have for any reference collection.

There are plenty of Beethoven's symphonies already - but this new recording occupies a unique place amongst them.

The surround sound version in this SACD had to be made because there was no existing recording of the symphonies in Tacet's Real Surround Sound. And this is music which cries out for the true Surround Sound experience. Beethoven extending horizons again!

This pioneering recording procedure was developed in 1999 by Tacet and has undergone subsequent improvement. The guiding principle is always the score itself. More than 50 of these issues are now available, and they all confirm how excitingly new and moving we can find familiar works. the listener's reaction to this type of recording is precisely not "I know this already".

The uniqueness of these Beethoven recordings is thus partly a result of the different conceptions and aspects of recording technique, but also derives from the intelligent and highly musical interpretation of this grandiose music. Both versions - stereo and surround - "overflow with music"! Wojciech Rajski and the Polish Chamber Philharmonia demonstrate that their performances together are always "in the forefront".
