"... beautifully played ... proudly shows the skill of both players and conductor ... essential for fans of 20th century American music. " - Classical.Net "... Morlot surveys Ives’s Symphony No. 2, with its exuberant European treatment of all-American tunes, in elegant, relatively fleet fashion ..." - Classical Voice North America "An all-American program offers big-boned, exciting performances of Ives’s Second Symphony and Gershwin’s An American in Paris, but hits paydirt with the world-premiere recording of Elliott Carter’s Instances, one of the late composer’s final works. - The Boston Globe This 2014 live album by The Seattle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ludovic Morlot.is dominated by two masterpieces from geniuses of early 20th century American music: Charles Ives and George Gershwin. With eclectic influences of jazz club, church hall, military band and popular melody, these works amount to nothing less than a portrait of American musical styles. Standing as a delicate counterpoint is a touching document of the world premiere performances of Instances, Elliott Carter’s elegiac last orchestral work. Carter dedicated Instances to conductor Morlot, who, in his words, “has performed many of my works so beautifully.”

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!
