"Conductor Hervé Niquet and his orchestra know this music well and play it with real affection, style and sparkle. Right from the opening bars of España you can tell this is going to be a delightful recording: perfect tempo, excellent orchestral balances and rhythmic swagger that spells confidence without a hint of bombast."
- ClassicsToday.com

Inspired by a trip to Spain, Chabrier composed the Romantic period classic España which Mahler, a big fan, called "the origin of modern music." Conductor Hervé Niquet has been praised for evoking an exuberant, colourful performance from the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra on this 1999 release, which includes the rarely recorded, very beautiful Lamento for English horn and orchestra.

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!
