Charles Ives was an innovator of the orchestral set, a type of larger work comprised of independently written small pieces. Each of the three orchestral sets presented here by the Malmö Chamber Choir, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, and conductor James Sinclair follow a slow-fast-slow pattern, with the unfinished Orchestral Set No. 3 being of particular note, as this is the work's first complete performance and recording.

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!
