This Naxos release sees fortepianists James Tibbles and Michael Tsalka perform four handed arrangements of three of Carl Ditters von Dittersdorf's lost “Ovid” symphonies. Initially conceived as an epic 15 symphony project inspired by stories from Ovid's Metamorphoses, only six survive fully orchestrated, but three still exist in keyboard arrangement and are presented here: Ajax et Ulysse, Hercule changé en Dieu, and Jason, qui emporte la toison d'or. Though they were not what Dittersdorf's originally had in mind, these programmatic arrangements have richness and fire, as well as being historically interesting responses to a Classical text.

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!
