"... if you didn’t buy this disc when it first came out, make every effort to rectify your omission ... (these performances) can hold their own with any of the competitive versions in the catalogue ... the model of naturalness ... a transparent, very clear and sonorous recording ... very strongly recommended." - MusicWeb International "... stunning performances of the two chamber symphonies ... these remarkably intense, marvellously played and conducted versions rise right to the top of the heap ... the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra clearly understands this music; its sound has a gutsy quality ... speaking of sound, BIS serves up an ideal combination of clarity and warmth, with ample space around the instruments that prevents them from ever coming across as steely or harsh, no matter how high the pressure. A magnificent disc." - ClassicsToday.com The Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra and Juha Kangas earned critical acclaim when this Shostakovich recording was first released in 2002, in particular for the the sound quality, called "sonorous" by MusicWeb International. The orchestra is graced by the presence of tenor Tom Nyman and award-winning soprano Anu Komsi on the Suite on Finnish Themes.

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!
