Digital Booklet
"... the Norrköping players make a superb job of playing all this terrifyingly original and disturbing music ... (conductor Lü Jia) must take an enormous amount of credit. By any standards, this is an outstanding disc." - MusicWeb International "The performances are excellent ... as always with BIS, they’re extremely well recorded. Conductor Lü Jia leads the Norrköping Orchestra with complete confidence and a genuine feel for the music’s texture and atmosphere. Curious sound effects, like the harpsichord in Symphony No. 8, receive their due ... if you like (Schnittke), you’ll like this: a disc for true believers." - ClassicsToday.com Lü Jia and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra released Alfred Schnittke's complete set of 10 symphonies as a celebrated box set in 2009. This album, first issued in 2005, features the Symphony No. 8 and two companion pieces not contained on the box set.

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!
