"... an important, adventurous release ... Ondine’s engineering is excellent in both symphonies ... this isn’t music for casual listening, but it certainly belongs on the shelf of every serious collector." - ClassicsToday.com "... what I especially appreciate about this production is its clarity, a crucial virtue in music that can summon some pretty crowded climaxes. You only need to venture two minutes into the opening movement to sample the first of them." - Gramophone "Four Stars. There are other good versions of this sumptuous work (the Second Symphony) ... but this Finnish account is at least their equal in impetus and recorded sound ... Lintu and his players sympathetically expound (the Chamber Symphony), at once elegiac and exploratory ... this is a little masterpiece." - BBC Music Magazine This is the first volume in an Enescu series from conductor Hannu Lintu, on which the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra demonstrates its mastering of great orchestral colour and impressive imagination.

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!
