Although small in scale, the Op. 2 set of symphonies by Franz Ignaz Beck includes some of the most striking and harmonically daring works of their kind from the mid-18th century, performed here by Canadian ensemble Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra. Beck is acknowledged today as one of the most forward-looking and inventive of the period's symphonists; this programme provides ample justification for that reputation. One of Canadaʼs leading chamber orchestras, Thirteen Strings consists of 13 professional string players directed by award-winning conductor Kevin Mallon.

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!
