Grammy Nomination - Best Engineered Album, Classical, 2015

"... the CSO delivered a performance that a composer can only dream of ..."
- Chicago Sun-Times

"... Muti and the CSO threw themselves into the music with considerable mega-wattage of their own."
- Chicago Tribune on Alternative Energy

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra commissioned composers-in-residence Mason Bates and Anna Clyne to compose these two pieces. Recorded live at their 2012 premieres, Bates’s Alternative Energy and Clyne’s Night Ferry are conducted by CSO Music Director Riccardo Muti on this Grammy nominated album.

Clyne says her work is a “sonic portrait of voyages; voyages within nature and of physical, mental and emotional states.” Inspired by Schubert, it makes reference to the mood swings heard in his works as they shift rapidly between emotional extremes.

Bates calls Alternative Energy an “energy symphony,” which travels from a rustic midwestern junkyard in the late 19th century through ever greater and more powerful forces of energy until it reaches a future Icelandic rain forest, where humanity’s last inhabitants seek a return to a simpler way of life.

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!
