This collection of world premiere recordings continues to shine the spotlight on Joachim Nikolas Eggert, one of the more progressive Swedish composers and conductors of his age. Gérard Korsten leads the Gävle Symphony Orchestra on this second volume devoted to the composer who died before achieving wider European recognition and has remained neglected ever since. The Second Symphony, both stormy and lyrical, reveals a technical brilliance that foreshadows Schubert while the Fourth Symphony, one of Eggert's most powerful works, reflects the military backdrop to the political unrest of the times.

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!
