"The RSNO play like musicians possessed as Neeme Järvi powers through it all with maximum forcefulness."
- Gramophone

"Four Stars ... the two overtures fizz and sparkle under Järvi's exuberant direction ... the Scottish players are on fine form, with wonderfully ripe brass and some lovely solos, notably the clarinet and violin ... Järvi shapes the emotional journey into a satisfying single arc ... the recording is demonstration class."
- Classic FM

Neeme Järvi conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on the third of four albums featuring Henk de Vlieger’s bold arrangements of operas by Wagner. On this album, de Vlieger turns to Wagner’s tragic-romantic opera Tristan und Isolde which is treated symphonically. The key themes of anticipation, longing, rapture, separation, hope, death and transfiguration are expressed solely through orchestral forces. This album also includes the overture to Wagner’s first great romantic opera Die Feen.

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!
