In A Symphony For Lovers

In this symphony for lovers, 101 Strings play new arrangements of songs and movements form the world of classical music.
These selections have the emotional depth as could only come from the masters of the romantic period in music.

The lush magnificence and emotional depth of "101 Strings" is due to a combination of factors. First in importance, is the concept of scoring for the strings. The necessity of using 101 strings instruments is to utilize various harmonies and voicings and not weaken the dynamic or quality of any one line when playing counter lines. This is particularly importance with the violins and violas. The listener will note that a times the melody line is in full presence and possibly a full and lovely conter line is being played without sacrificing the full dynamic value of either. Secondly, the original performances have been records under the most exacting audio engineering standards with specially designed microphones with characteristics to compensate for any possible distortion from the tremendous bass frequency response in cello and string bass. Third, and of extreme importance, are the players themselves. They represent the finest musicians in Europe today. In fact there are 11 concertmeisters in the first chairs.

Depending on the selections and arrangements, the orchestra is composed of 128 to 141 players. Of these, there are 30 first violins, 26 second violins, 20 violas, 18 cells and 7 string basses. The rest may be in woodwinds, brass or percussion, This album is among the first of a series of 24 to be released excusively by Somerset Records in 1958. These will include broadway musical scores, mood music, travel impressions, standard popular songs from films scores and classics. No matter wha you preference is in music - there is a rich and rewarding listening experience awaiting you with 101 Strings.

The arrangements in this album were scored by Joseph Kuhn and orchestra is conducted by Wilheim Stephan. The recording was made in October 1957 at Musikhalle in Hamburg, Germany under the direction of D. L. Miller
