In January 2002 PentaTone recorded the official music which was performed during the wedding ceremony of the Dutch crown prince Willem-Alexander and Máxima. In 2013, Willem-Alexander and Máxima became the King and Queen of the Netherlands.

This album features all the music played during the Royal Wedding of Prince Willem Alexander and Princess Máxima on February 2, 2002 in Amsterdam. Listening to the music of Bach, Handel, Mozart, Schubert, and many others brings back memories of that glorious day.

It includes a new arrangement of Piazzola’s famous tango “Adios Nonino” for Chamber Orchestra, Choir, and Bandoneon. Carel Kraayenhof’s stunning performance of Adiós Nonino’ on bandoneon (see video below) was the reason for Princess Máxima’s memorable tears.

Back in 2002, the album was released as a Surround Sound Super Audio CD (SACD) and the SACD sold over 75.000 copies (triple platinum) in the Netherlands shortly after the wedding. A unique achievement for a classical release.  The album is out of print on SACD but is now available as a Stereo DSD 64 music download at NativeDSD Music.
