"The performances from the Iceland Symphony under Rumon Gamba are faultless. Louis Lortie is the restrained yet dexterous soloist in the Symphonie."
- The Guardian

This is volume five in a series exploring the orchestral output of Vincent d’Indy, nicknamed "The Samson of Music" by Fauré for his work as a composer, conductor and teacher. Based on a folk tune from the Tourtous, the Symphonie sur un chant montagnard français has become one of the composer’s most popular works. The highly atmospheric piece is scored for piano and orchestra; however, far from engaging in conflict with the orchestra, the soloist operates on equal terms. The part is performed on this recording by internationally acclaimed pianist Louis Lortie.

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!
