Digital Booklet
Nordic composer Hans Abrahamsen has come into the public eye after winning the Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2015 and the Grawemeyer Award in 2016. This album from the Ensemble MidtVest offers an excellent opportunity to catch up on two of his earliest works: the expressive Landscapes, composed in 1972, along with Walden, composed in 1978. In addition to these original pieces, the programme includes Abrahamsen's arrangements of Schumann’s Kinderszenen and Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin.

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!
