The Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy returns to Native DSD Music with their newest album WorthWeill Originals from Channel Classics Records.  This is the band's 6th DSD album and it comes to our listeners 6 weeks before the album's scheduled release date on Stereo CD.

Worthweill Originals is a DSD 256 Stereo and DSD 256 Multichannel recording produced and engineered by Jared Sacks with the Merging Technologies Horus Analog to DSD 256 Converter, van Medevoort Amplifiers, Bruel & Kjaer 4006 and Schoeps Microphones, exclusive use of Van den Hul 3T cables, and Audio Lab (recording) and Grimm LS1 (mastering) Loudspeakers. It is also available from NativeDSD in Stereo DSD 512.

On 'WorthWeill Originals' you hear German-Austrian gems of original compositions for military band . The first volume of works for military band by the Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy on Channel Classics - Rimsky & Co: Originals -  received 5 stars in BBC Music Magazine: "Astonishing clarity of sound and texture thanks both to a crack ensemble and the superb recording. Brilliant, effervescent discoveries." 

Conductor Major Arjan Tien tells us more about this 2nd Volume, WorthWeill Originals: "Embarking on a series of recordings of classical originals for symphonic wind band is an adventurous quest. We decided to compile German-Austrian gems on this second volume, illustrating the development and expansion of the symphonic wind band of nearly one and a half century: from Beethoven (1810) to Hindemith (1951). Richard Strauss composed “Variationen uber ‘Wilhelm von Oranien’ “ in 1892.

The former principal conductor of the Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy, major Pieter Jansen, rediscovered this work in the archives of the Royal House of the Netherlands in 1999. It became our National Anthem in 1932, but the melody dates back to at least 1572.

Another work on this album that was published only twenty years ago is the beautiful and virtuosic Nocturne by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy. Two marches by composers no less than Beethoven and Bruckner, should naturally be included on an album by a military band, representing a different and lesser-known part of their repertoire.

We conclude our journey with three twentieth century German- Austrian giants: Paul Hindemith, Arnold Schönberg and Kurt Weill. Interestingly, their works on this album were all composed in the United States, where all three of them spent time during the course of their careers."

Marine Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy

The Marine Band, based in Rotterdam, was founded in 1945 and is in fact the continuation of the pre-war Regimental Band of the Royal Netherlands Navy, founded by King Willem III in 1864.

The 54 professional musicians, combined with the artistic and creative abilities of their conductors, have substantially contributed to the development and appreciation of military music in the Netherlands. With a characteristic 'Sound & Drive', the band has won the hearts of a large public. It is the musical visiting card of the Royal Netherlands Navy. The band's principal responsibility is the musical accompaniment of military ceremonial events for the Royal Family, Government and the Royal Netherlands Navy. Traditional highlights are the annual opening of the States General (Prinsjesdag), The Netherlands Military Tattoo, Remembrance Day and the Marine Corps concerts.
