“a fierce, lucid account of Bartók’s last great masterpiece, Concerto for Orchestra... with the ever persuasive Canadian violinist James Ehnes as soloist, full of Hungarian-Romanian zest. The Bergen orchestra sounds wonderfully alive to Bartók’s rhythmic exactitudes.”
- Fiona Maddocks, The Observer

Acclaimed Canadian violinist James Ehnes collaborates with conductor Edward Gardner and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra on this all-Bartók release. Featuring two versions of the vibrant and gutsy Violin Rhapsody No. 1, the majority of the album is dedicated to orchestral works, namely the Dance Suite and the famous Concerto for Orchestra, making for a lively and engaging release performed by world-class musicians.

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!
