"This excellent disc is a curious mixture of rejected, real and reconstructed Janáček ... one is immediately aware of the very best Chandos sound and of music performed by an orchestra of the utmost virtuosity in the very best, colourful Eastern European style." - MusicWeb International This is the second volume in a series devoted to the orchestral works of Janácek from the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Edward Gardner. The repertoire includes some of the greatest programmatic pieces written by the composer, notably the one-movement Violin Concerto which stars acclaimed soloist James Ehnes. The album also contains an interpretation of the famous tale by Gogol, Taras Bulba, Janácek’s most substantial orchestral work to that point. It is inflected with folk dances, battle and equestrian music, suffering and love, all brought to a grandiloquent apotheosis in orchestration of almost cinematic vividness.

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!
