"... Yamada displays an interpretative nous, strength of personality and scrupulous attention to detail that are singularly impressive ... winningly alert and tastefully refined playing from the OSR (whose principal flute and harp cover themselves in glory)."
- Gramophone

"... stereo sound quality is excellent, beautifully balanced with plenty of tone colour. This album is quite an achievement for a young conductor. The Bizet and the Fauré in particular are performances any maestro could be proud of. It is good to hear the Suisse Romande still offering French music to the manner born."
- Fanfare

Kazuki Yamada leads the Suisse Romande Orchestra, known for superb performances of French music, on this first album in a series of three featuring ballet, theatre and dance music. The programme comprises music by French composers, amongst them the very popular Arlésienne suites by George Bizet.

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!
