Total Playing Time    73:59
Contemporary Danish composer John Frandsen has become known as a sublime musical interpreter of texts, as demonstrated by the talented artists on this album, a collection of his most evocative solo song cycles. Common to all five cycles is Frandsen's sincere and open approach to the textual expression; from the truly intimate and even erotic to the philosophical and the absurdly silly. The programme showcases four of Scandinavia's most promising young opera singers, notably award-winning Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen and the composer's son, countertenor Morten Grove Frandsen.

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!
