"... assured and completely idiomatic performances ... quite enough to demonstrate (Štilec’s) expert professional credentials."
- MusicWeb International

"... very well played and recorded ... Štilec offers compelling interpretations of all five pieces. The music is fun ... a convenient way to fill out your collection of Czech romantic orchestral music."
- ClassicsToday.com

This marks the third volume of Zdenĕk Fibich's orchestral works recorded by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra under Marek Štilec. Less well known than his compatriots Dvořák and Smetana, Fibich was however one of the greatest Czech composers of his day. This 2014 collection of symphonic poems spans the best part of his career, starting with Othello, which emphasizes the intertwined fates of Shakespeare’s main characters. The Tempest encapsulates Shakespeare’s story of storm, shipwreck and reconciliation; the symphonic picture Spring depicts the season in all its variety.

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!
