With this 2017 double album, the Minnesota Orchestra under its Finnish music director Osmo Vänskä celebrates the 150th anniversary of what is sometimes called the "Great Migration" of Finns to the United States. The orchestra commissioned Olli Kortekangas to compose a work on the theme of migration, of a scale and nature suitable for performance alongside Jean Sibelius’s great Kullervo. Discovering the work of the Minnesota-based poet Sheila Packa, herself of Finnish descent, Kortekangas composed Migrations for mezzo-soprano, male voice choir and orchestra, the same forces as in Kullervo, with the exception of baritone soloist. An all-star Finnish cast led by soloists Lilli Paasikivi and Tommi Hakala with the celebrated YL Male Voice Choir joins the Minnesota Orchestra for a memorable performance.

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!
