"The performance is excellent, with Storgårds and the Helsinki Philharmonic offering a rhythmically zesty and bold account ... these are as fine or better than the competition and the engineering is also excellent: clear, well-balanced and tactile." - ClassicsToday.com "I enjoyed this very much indeed and I’m very glad that at long last I’ve become acquainted with the music of Leevi Madetoja ... the orchestral playing is very good indeed ... I’ve always been impressed with the natural clarity and truthful balance of (Ondine) recordings and this is no exception." - MusicWeb International John Storgårds leads the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra on this programme of works by Finnish composer Leevi Madetoja, who is considered, alongside Sibelius, one of the most significant composers from that country. The orchestra presents two of Madetoja's symphonies here, including his masterpiece Symphony No. 3.

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!
