“Another Sibelius CD of exceptional interest and fascination from Lahti and Osmo Vänskä in the BIS complete survey. Impressive playing throughout an excellent recording.”
- BBC Music Magazine

“Vänskä and his bright-eyed Lahti band are on irreproachable form... A strong recommendation.”
- Gramophone

Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä and the Lahti Symphony Orchestra have carved out a space as world-renowned Sibelius interpreters, particularly with regards to the composer's lesser known and neglected works. The present album, Seriously Sibelius, continues that tradition with a diverse programme including several world premieres. Bookended by two versions of the In memoriam, Op. 59, the works collected here are often sombre, but are lightened by dashes of gaiety provided by the spinning waltzes of 3 Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 96.

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!
