"Ahmas’s music [...] is filled with invention, compositional discipline, extraordinary instrumentation (never do you tire of the 16 hands of the Zagros Ensemble) and a deep yet instant reaction to the text that gives it an almost Italian feel. When it matters, Ahmas controls himself with good use of ostinato and patterning – or the pure colour of an instrument..." - Gramophone The Zagros Ensemble and soloists approach this stunning and conceptual chamber opera by the composer Harri Ahmas (also principal bassoonist with the Lahti Symphony Orchestra). “The story of my chamber opera started with the touching and intricate poetical work 'Käärmesormus' (Snake Ring) by Tittamari Marttinen, which mezzo soprano Ulla Raiskio had found and was impressed with. The opera has certain leading motives that keep repeating, recalling and taking the story onward. The theme played by a cello and a bass in the beginning of 'Prologi' (Prologue) is one of them, another is a theme depicting abdication and death in 'Kehtolaulu' (Lullaby) in the first act, and a third one is a theme in 'Ripustan amuletit kaulalleni' (Wearing Charms on My Neck) representing everyday chores and babysitting.” - Harri Ahmas

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!
