"I doubt that there is a better introduction to [Rehnqvist's] highly personal sound-world than this generously filled, superbly and convincingly played composer’s portrait. This very fine release is again up to BIS’s best standards and is warmly recommended." - Hubert Culot, MusicWeb International Arktis Arktis! collects together works by one of Scandinavia's leading composers, Karin Rehnqvist. Including the clarinet concerto On a Distant Shore (featuring soloist Martin Fröst) and the title work Arktis Arktis! (performed by the Swedish Chamber Orchestra), Rehnqvist's work incorporates elements of Swedish folk music and responds to the ecological features of her Nordic surroundings in moving and sometimes unexpected ways.

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!
