"...the work comes across as an enjoyable indulgent orchestral showpiece- full of incident and variety. Schmitt’s ingratiating Gallic style is always appealing." - Financial Times "The result is late musical Impressionism of a very high order …" - Classical Source The BBC Symphony Orchestra champion rarely performed works such as the program on this album. This acclaimed ensemble dives into the musical world of Florent Schmitt. Schmitt's second symphony is complimented by two orchestral suites which all highlight Schmitt's signature French classical techniques.

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!
