"Enthusiastically recommended." - Fanfare "One of the standout contemporary music releases of 2006." - ClassicsToday.com “To me, a basic measure for assessing a new piece like this is, ‘do I want to hear it again?’ The answer to this question here [regarding BULL's eye] is a resounding YES... I recommend [this release] on the strength of the performances, the recording, and the quality of the compositions, all of which make this something of a must for the new music enthusiast.” - MusicWeb International This release from the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra with conductor Rolf Gupta and violinist Peter Herresthal sees these top notch musicians perform various works by Norwegian composer Olav Anton Thommessen. Displaying Thommessen's collage-like approach to composition, seamlessly blending the old and the new, this album features the violin concerto BULL's eye—an interpretation of a 19th-century concerto by the famed Norwegian violinist Ole Bull—as well as the duet Please Accept my Ears and the solo violin piece Cantabile (Etude-cadenza).

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!
