"... (Isokoski's) is a true opera house voice, a glorious, full-bodied, sparkling soprano with the power to ride over the orchestra pit. Yet Isokoski's projection comes from vibrancy rather than sheer heft."
- The Guardian

The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor Hannu Lintu feature world premiere recordings of three orchestral works by Erkki Melartin, one of the most influential Finnish composers and symphonists of the early 20th century. The centrepiece here is the large-scale impressionistic symphonic poem Traumgesicht, considered by Melartin himself as one of his most important compositions. It remained unperformed for 81 years until Lintu brought it back to light by conducting it in Helsinki in 2013. Acclaimed soprano Soile Isokoski sings the solo part of Marjatta, based on the Finnish national epic. On the album's closing piece, from the ballet The Blue Pearl, Lintu has adapted the music of the ballet into an eight-movement concert suite.

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!
