"... what distinguished (Ante Lucem) from other symphonic collaborations was its remarkable integration. This was not a case of alternating passages for orchestra and quintet, though there were plenty of feature spots for Haarla’s group ... instead this suite, intended to reflect on that quiet time of day between moonset and sunrise, traversed a great range of imagery and emotion ... whether it was more dramatic turns with the full orchestra or breakdowns into smaller subsets, it was an evocative and provocative performance." - All About Jazz Ante Lucem, a powerful work for jazz quintet and symphony orchestra by Finnish composer and musician Iro Haarla, was commissioned by the Norrlands Opera Symphony Orchestra and its leader Marco Feklistoff and premiered in October 2012 with Haarla and his quintet joining the orchestra. The concert was recorded live and this album is drawn both from the premiere and from sessions recorded in the days following.

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!
