Digital Booklet
"... this has some special qualities. It is without question gorgeously played and opulently engineered, which is saying a lot ... this performance, conducted by Storgards with 100% conviction and confidence, is worth having." - ClassicsToday.com Finnish musician and conductor John Storgårds leads the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra on world premiere recordings of two major orchestral works by Alexander Zemlinsky. Die Seejungfrau ("Mermaid"), a powerful three-movement symphonic fantasy, is presented here in the critical version by Antony Beaumont, featuring some five minutes of music excluded from later versions. The Sinfonietta is a fascinating example of Zemlinsky's late orchestral writing and stylistic evolution. The work as heard on this album is a new version for chamber orchestra by Austrian composer Roland Freisitzer.

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!
