"The Youth Orchestra sounds perfect as a whole as well as in its various sections ... Hamelin imprints profound nostalgia and Beethoven-like grandeur to Dvořák’s magnificent and touching work ..."
- La Presse

Under the inspired and dynamic direction of young Quebec conductor Jean-Pascal Hamelin, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas offers a refreshing and sonically stunning version of Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, also known as the New World Symphony. Recorded live in concert in August 2009 amid the unique acoustics of the Domaine Forget in Charlevoix, Québec, the double ADISQ Award nominated album also features the irresistible Danzón No. 2, a nostalgic yet lively piece by Mexican composer Arturo Marquez. A dazzling Bootlegger’s Tarentella by Canadian composer John Estacio concludes the programme.

The recording was done with only two Schoeps M-222 tube microphones connected to a tubed preamplifier and linked directly to a dCS 905 analogue-to-digital converter with a 352 kHz DXD resolution. A dCS Scarlatti clock and a Pyramix Mykerinos recorder completed the recording arsenal.

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!
