Digital Booklet
"(The First Symphony) is a grave work which inhabits Pettersson’s accustomed niche for the angst-ridden and for tragic malcontents ... it’s an interesting experience and one that draws one into an emotional world familiar from the mature symphonies with occasional voices from the direction of Hindemith and Schoenberg ... a monumentally important first recording ..." - MusicWeb International First released in 2011, this album from Christian Lindberg and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra kicked off a series devoted to the symphonies of Swedish composer Allan Pettersson. Of particular note is the world premiere of the Symphony No. 1, which Pettersson tinkered with for decades. Entrusted with the manuscript material, some 240 pages, Lindberg was able to prepare a performable version and debuted the symphony in May 2010, leading to this recording of his reconstruction.

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!
