Digital Booklet
"The BIS recording can only be described as exemplary capturing the music in vivid, transparent colour, whilst Tabea Zimmerman, Ola Rudner and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra are truly worthy exponents of Beamish’s strikingly evocative, personal and atmosphere-rich scores. The result is a beautifully realized CD." - MusicWeb International "... this trio of orchestral works are among (Beamish's) best: there's the kind of creative confidence and certainty, couched in unmistakable personal tones, which, in assured performances, well recorded, makes for a first-rate CD ... (the Viola Concerto No. 2) has the added benefit of Tabea Zimmermann's marvellously characterful performance." - Gramophone Violist Tabea Zimmermann joins Ola Rudner and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra on the Viola Concerto No. 2 "The Seafarer" to open this celebrated 2008 album devoted to British composer Sally Beamish. Rounding out the programme are companion pieces Whitescape and Sangsters.

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!
