"... playing, as in previous releases in this series, is never less than world class ... Oramo’s conducting is, if anything, even more consistently fine ... the performance has a rare unity and integrity ... just about as good as it gets and so are the sonics. A brilliant series ends brilliantly ..." - ClassicsToday.com The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and Sakari Oramo conclude a highly-acclaimed cycle of Nielsen's symphonies with this ICMA nominated installment covering the composer's Symphony No. 2 and Symphony No. 6, named Recording of the Year by MusicWeb International.

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!
