"... Sakari approaches all three works with passionate conviction; the Icelanders play them with ardour and coruscating tone; Chandos captures their performances in vivid sound."
- American Record Guide

This collection spotlighting the works of Uuno Klami is performed idiomatically by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Petri Sakari. Klami's compositions form one of the high points in the post-Sibelius history of Finnish orchestral music. The Karelian Rhapsody, one of the composer’s most performed works, is imbued with Finnish folk music heritage but within wider context. The Kalevala Suite took 14 years to compose and is considered his most important work.

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!
