- The Times of London

This album is the much-anticipated final release in the Minnesota Orchestra's acclaimed series of the symphonies of Sibelius. Recorded at Orchestra Hall in May and June 2015, the programme showcases music director Osmo Vänskä at the podium, leading the lean and beautiful Third Symphony, the mysterious Sixth and the majestic, one-movement Seventh Symphony, a crowning achievement of the Finnish composer’s life and work.

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!
