- Audiophile Audition

"Prediction: The visionary new music, system-testing percussion and virtual rainbow of colours ... guarantee that it will become a hit among music-loving audiophiles ... inventive genius that courses through the recording’s three compositions ... is, in and of itself, enrapturing, formidable and breathtaking ... spectacular colouristic and percussive effects captured by the Soundmirror engineering team ... (the most spectacular piece of the lot, Norman’s Switch), showcases the phenomenal percussionist Colin Currie, as well as the orchestra’s percussion ensemble."
- Stereophile

The Utah Symphony Orchestra celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2015 by commissioning three significant and adventurous works by leading composers Augusta Read Thomas, Nico Muhly and Andrew Norman. Performed at concerts throughout the year, the pieces were recorded live and released on this acclaimed audiophile album in April 2016. World-renowned percussionist Colin Currie joins the orchestra on Norman’s Switch.

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!
