Blu-Ray Audio Disc Featuring Tacet Real Surround Sound!
Founded by Matthias Jung in 1996, the Saxon Vocal Ensemble is one of the most highly esteemed ensembles in Germany and around the world. Performances of early music set new standards in stylistic assurance, precision of articulation, certainty of intonation, virtuosity and emotional depth. In time Mr. Jung and the ensemble incorporated Romantic music into their repertoire. Released in 2006 to rave reviews for performance and sound, Felix Mendelssohns complete songs for mixed a capella choir can now be heard anew on this Blu-ray audio disc release, in either stereo or multi-channel sound.
Matthias Jung is a fairly unassuming person (as are other TACET musicians such as Evgeni Koroliov or the Auryn Quartet). He places his musicality and his ability completely in the service of music. He understands how to transfer the traditional and yet timelessly modern characteristics of the German language into music and how to blend the melody of the language with musical melody in a way that is reminiscent of the high culture of the 19th century, stemming from Mendelssohn and in which Mendelssohn himself felt at home
Use the Blu-ray player as easily as a CD-player. This also works without a screen. Play, Pause, Skip, Forward, Backward, Numeric Keys - everything as usual. Playback by default in 5.1 (multi-channel). Alternate between 5.1 (red) and Stereo 2.0 (yellow) with the colored buttons at any time. Operation via screen is self-explanatory.
