"The PentaTone recording is excellent, especially in 24-bit form ..."
- MusicWeb International

"... a highly sensitive and fluid reading which illuminates the complex thematic relationships between the four movements of this mighty work ... pristinely captured in vivid sonics, these are live performances unmarred by any extraneous noises ... a recording you’ll surely enjoy listening to repeatedly."
- The WholeNote

Carlos Kalmar leads the Oregon Symphony on this double Grammy nominated live album celebrating the works of one of the musical giants of the 20th century, Aaron Copland, together with music by his colleague Walter Piston, who was, according to Copland, “one of the most expert craftsmen American music can boast.” The programme also includes A Jazz Symphony by the self-proclaimed bad boy of music, George Antheil. These works, recorded live in April 2013 and January 2014, are undeniably a tribute to the distinctive musical characterization of American themes in a passionate, modern style.

"It is a great pleasure to share these important American works for which I have the greatest fondness and appreciation. They aren’t widely performed and certainly deserve to be enjoyed by a wider public."
- Carlos Kalmar, conductor and music director

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!
