This is the second volume of a three album cycle of Saint-Saëns symphonies from the Malmö Symphony Orchestra under Marc Soustrot, considered a specialist in French orchestral music. Inspired by and dedicated to Liszt, the Symphony No. 3 is groundbreaking in its inclusion of organ and piano. To Saint-Saëns, this represented the progress made in modern instrumentation and the result is a work both spectacular and grandiose, showcasing organ soloist Carl Adam Landström. The programme also features the youthful Symphony in A Major, Saint-Saëns's first completed symphony, fully revealing his admiration for Mozart, while Le rouet d’Omphale is an impressively atmospheric tone poem.

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!
