"... offers Svendsen at his most original and entertaining ... this is music admirers of traditional romantic symphonies and symphonic repertoire ought to know ... this hugely enjoyable disc of undemandingly appealing music presented in typically superb Chandos sound is an excellent place to start." - MusicWeb International Conductor Neeme Järvi continues his Nordic project with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra on this second volume in their survey of orchestral works by Norwegian composer Johan Svendsen, a contemporary of Grieg and the first really successful Norwegian symphonist. Svendsen's acclamed Cello Concerto, presented here, speaks to the poetic capabilities of the solo instrument rather than relying on virtuoso passages; in this respect it demands a cellist capable of bringing out the work’s subtle lyrical qualities. Charged with this task is Grammy-winning Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk, described by The Telegraph as "a player of angelic grace and purity of tone."

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!
