This album features recent works by one of the most important contemporary Finnish composers, Kaija Saariaho, performed by The Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg led by music director Marko Letonja. Two of the works, the orchestral version of Quatre instants and Émilie Suite, feature award-winning soprano Karen Vourc’h. Émilie Suite includes three songs and two orchestral interludes from Saariaho’s monodrama Opera Émilie. Quatre instants is one of Saariaho’s vocal masterpieces, a four movement song cycle reflecting various dimensions of love.

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!
