Digital Booklet
Finnish orchestra the Turku Philharmonic under conductor Leif Segerstam presents this music that proved so important to Sibelius’s development. Alongside the great symphonies and tone poems, music for the theatre was influential to the composer. Belshazzar’s Feast, which features soprano Pia Pajala, is an exotic tale of seduction and tragedy to which Sibelius responded with some of his most hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage. The early Menuetto and lively Cortège were considered good enough by Sibelius to be recycled for further stage productions, while the Overture in E and Scène de Ballet started life as his first attempt at composing a symphony.

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!
