"No less an achievement was the near-flawless execution of the difficult solo parts. This performance contained much that was special and desirable in the realization of Messiaen’s highly idiomatic music ..."

A live concert performance from the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Christoph Eschenbach, featuring American pianist Tzimon Barto. Commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of the US Declaration of Independence, Olivier Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles (From the Canyons to the Stars) was inspired by the composer’s tours around Utah’s magnificent landscapes. The work’s unusual instrumentation creates a texture that evokes the majesty and loneliness of the landscape with astonishing effect. Recorded live at Royal Festival Hall in London in November 2013, this album presents a rare opportunity to hear a work not available extensively on record and infrequently performed live.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
