"Five Stars ... beautifully executed by Christina Åstrand who shows off the upper register of her instrument with a lovely purity of both tone and intonation ... recording quality is full-sounding ... a credit to the engineer." - Audiophile Audition While Danish Romantic violin concertos aren't that common, the important examples of the genre on this recording firmly establish that great violin concertos had a place in Danish music. Featuring three rarely performed works, this release highlights one of Denmark's finest soloists, Christina Åstrand, here in good Finnish company with the Tampere Philharmonic and its chief conductor John Storgårds.

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!
