About the Album

So-called entertainment or light music tends to carry a negative connotation these days. For many, it would seem that achieving overnight success and making loads of money are on a par with easy music, preferably performed by musicians in very smart attire. But that certainly hasn’t always been the case. Indeed, Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven and, of course, the Strauss family – to name but a few great composers – whose music belongs to the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra’s repertoire, could provide audiences of their day with plenty of exciting, entertaining fare with their contradances, ländlers, waltzes and quodlibets to which people danced, laughed and drank. Mastering this aspect of composition was an art for such masters. The main difference with much of today’s popular music is perhaps that, in the past, superficiality was not necessarily a prerequisite.

The same holds true for NedSymLite. After our concert performances featuring works by Beethoven, Schumann and Wagner, for instance, why not enjoy NedSym Lite? Performed with such skill, mastery and success! We simply couldn’t resist sharing all this with you on a CD…
