"Editor's Choice. Nicely crafted and highly enjoyable music, played with all the life and fizz it requires ... ( Järvi brings) swagger, immense charm and foot-tapping brio ... my goodness, this career bandmaster certainly knew how to orchestrate. The sound picture is a Chandos spectacular."
- Gramophone

On this release, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and its laureate conductor Neeme Järvi tackle works by romantic Czech composer Julius Fučík, famous for more than 400 polkas, marches and waltzes, a selection of which is featured here. Playing in Austro-Hungarian regiments, Fučík gained invaluable experience writing for military bands and became a very prolific composer of marches. The most famous of these is Entry of the Gladiators, included on this programme. Full of energetic, effervescent Bohemian cross-rhythms and tuneful brass melodies often now associated with a circus atmosphere, this album is a festival in itself.

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!
