Although the most famous, Edvard Grieg is only one of many Norwegian composers who found folk music a deep and decisive source of inspiration, as demonstrated by this album. Combining traditional folk songs with recent compositions springing from folk, Grete Pedersen and the Norwegian Soloists' Choir make a compelling case for the powerful hold that the music has over the country's cultural life. For the recording, Pedersen invited one of Norway’s most respected folk singers, Berit Opheim Vers, to join her, the choir and fiddler and composer Gjermund Larsen on their journey through this intricate landscape.

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!
