Grammy Award nomination – Producer Of The Year, Classical, 2017

Whether it’s a confident swagger or a balletic grace, a beguiling folk melody or a quicksilver rondo, there is always something new to discover in the endlessly inventive symphonies of Haydn, especially in these firm favourites recorded live by the multiple Grammy-nominated Oregon Symphony under Carlos Kalmar. While Haydn wrote only one “Surprise” symphony, there are surprises to be enjoyed aplenty here. From the bewildering Largo in the Symphony No. 64, with its unexpected turns and derailments, to the ceremonial elegance and ear-tickling melodies of the Symphony No. 53 or the mock heroics and propulsive rhythms of the Symphony No. 96, Haydn’s irrepressible and dazzling ingenuity constantly delights and astonishes.

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!
