Sibelius' first Symphony illustrates the composer's strong grasp of classical form. Tchaikovsky perhaps unsurprisingly is the composer who exerts the greatest influence over proceedings but nevertheless the style we know as 'Sibelian' is ever present. The Third from 1907 represents a sea change from the expansive earlier Symphonies: three movements, tightly argued with not a superfluous note - the intellectual rigour is similar to that of Beethoven. The third saw Sibelius pushing the boundaries of the 'classical' symphony structure.

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!
