"If the Saint-Saëns is good, the Ravel is excellent. Fully attuned to the atmosphere and color of these oft-played works, Morlot cultivates a genuine French sound ... the Seattle Symphony has always played this music well, and it's wonderful to see them take the reins and make a major statement ..."

A live recording of three of Ravel’s best loved orchestral works performed by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ludovic Morlot. This 2014 album also includes an electrifying performance of Saint-Saëns’s Organ Symphony, showcasing Benaroya Hall’s 4,489-pipe Watjen organ, one of the finest concert organs in the US. The repertoire is a tribute to Morlot’s French heritage. The recording has been engineered to audiophile standards, to capture as realistically as possible the sound of the orchestra performing on the acoustically superb Benaroya Hall stage, with naturalistic imaging, depth of field and dynamic range.

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!
