"The luminous orchestral palette of d'Indy's Symphonie is beautifully defined here, with Martin Helmchen a scintillating partner in the piano solo ... Chausson's Soir de fete is given with due rapture and instrumental glow. This is an imaginative programme, performed with panache."
- Gramophone

"Janowski and his rejuvenated orchestra ensure that elegant phrasing, transparent textures and a balletic rhythmic awareness generate colour and atmosphere without overload. No profound hidden agendas, just a vital, smiling realization of unpretentious music beautifully crafted for enjoyment by audience and performers alike."
- International Record Review

Marek Janowski conducts the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande on this album dedicated to three French composers from the impressionist period: Camille Saint-Saëns, Ernest Chausson and Vincent d' Indy. Virtuoso German pianist Martin Helmchen is the featured soloist on the d'Indy symphony which kicks off the programme.

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!
