"The most enraptured and heartfelt rendering of the inexplicably neglected Svendsen Romance that I have ever heard. This is music-making at a truly exalted level."
- International Record Review

“A very well chosen smorgasbord of Nordic music... played with the utmost feeling and with gem-like purity of tone."
- American Record Guide

“Both the playing and Lindberg’s conducting are uniformly outstanding, particularly in Leifs’ quirky Pastoral Variations on a theme of Beethoven... The sonics are also outstanding.”
- ClassicsToday.com

Nordic Showcase sees conductor Christian Lindberg lead the Nordic Chamber Orchestra in a collection of hidden gems and well-known works by 19th- and 20th-century composers from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Finland. Highlights included violinist Richard Tognetti's appearance in Svendsen's famous Romance and Nielsen's romantic Suite for Strings in A minor, all expertly performed by Lindberg and the Orchestra.

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!
