“Vincent d’Indy wrote gorgeously expressive music that is scarcely played today. The Iceland SO and Rumon Gamba’s excellent advocacy reminds us that he was a sensual orchestral colourist, at once French and Teutonic in style.” - Fiona Maddocks, The Observer “Rumon Gamba... draws deeply sympathetic playing from his orchestra, leaving us to wish that d'Indy had always composed thus.” - Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine The Iceland Symphony Orchestra and conductor Rumon Gamba return with the third volume in their series on French composer Vincent d'Indy. This installment sees them perform the composer's final patriotic Symphony No. 3, "Sinfonia brevis de bello gallico", the lush symphonic poem Istar (inspired by an ancient Assyrian epic), the rich saxophone concerto Choral varie featuring soloist Sigurdur Flosason, and the evocative Diptyque mediterraneen.

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!
