"The Oulu Symphony Orchestra are based just outside the Arctic Circle and consequently not so well known further south, but ought to be: their performances here are terrific." - MusicWeb International "The intensity of Hakola's response to the music compels attention through every bar of the (central) movement ... the Oulu Symphony Orchestra are on fine form throughout and Santtu-Matias Rouvali directs with assurance.” - Gramophone Critically acclaimed and award-winning guitarist Timo Korhonen and the Oulu Symphony Orchestra present world premiere recordings of two guitar concertos written especially for Korhonen, one by Kimmo Hakola and the other by Toshio Hosokawa. Hakola's work is a colourful exploration of themes connected to both medieval and modern southern Spain and northern Africa, while Hosokawa takes a more meditative approach as he searches for symbolic universal harmony.

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!
