"... a chance to illustrate his captivating skills in both jazzy and classical genres. His liquid sounds, wide colour palette and sense of timing sets this version of the Copland above any competition ... and the Rotterdam Orchestra surprises in its exuberant embrace of the two US pieces. Bold, close-mic'd sound."
- Hi-Fi News

"... a clarinettist of notable suavity ... a superior disc that, more than displaying the instrument's scope, proposes it as a stylistic kaleidoscope."
- The Sunday Times

Andres Ottensamer appears beside the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, lead by Yannick Nézet-Séguin on this diverse and exciting recital programme for the clarinet.

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!
