"... Álvaro Cassuto leads the Northern Sinfonia in a trenchant, rhythmically vital performance that should win the work many friends ... offers ample rewards on repeated listening."
- ClassicsToday.com

The four works for strings included on this 2002 release clearly reflect the musical evolution of Joly Braga Santos, undoubtedly one of the leading Portuguese symphonists of the 20th century. For this reason the works follow the chronological order of their composition. Conductor Álvaro Cassuto has a long history with this composer and his music, having conducted the premiere of the Sinfonietta in 1963.

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!
