"Cellist Claes Gunnarsson plays with gorgeous tone and with plenty of personality ... Svedlund and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra are confident and sympathetic advocates ..."
- Fanfare

"Recording of the Month. The work’s full power works upon you within 10 seconds ... Gunnarsson is so good that this performance will be mandatory for much more than just the extraordinary sound quality ... it is a masterpiece."
- MusicWeb International

This is the fourth album in a series dedicated to the orchestral works of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, performed by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra under Thord Svedlund. Weinberg’s highly austere five-movement Symphony No. 20 is challenging, perplexing and unpredictable, showing off the talents of the orchestra and conductor as well as soloist Claes Gunnarsson, one of Sweden’s leading cellists.

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!
