"The Athelas Sinfonietta's playing is suitably hypnotic, with beautiful solos and a sense of the music's haze despite a close recording. Resonant and fascinating music from a composer who knows himself and his art."
- Gramophone

"... there is a sense of variety throughout the works here. Sounds seem offered not just for their own sake and there is a feeling of argument and development. Some recent music shimmers rather aimlessly: here there is purpose as well as shape. Recording quality is excellent, as one takes rather for granted with Dacapo. Performances are clear and affectionate. Buck is very popular in Denmark and works of this beauty are worth wider circulation. This is a splendid disc ... one to explore and delight in."
- MusicWeb International

Jesper Nordin and the Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen showcase Danish composer Ole Buck, his music simple and beauty-seeking yet sophisticated and surprising on its own terms. Some pieces make do with as few as five notes, but the composer’s incomparable sense of timing ensures that the listener never feels the need for more. This album contains premiere recordings of four of Buck’s works, three of which are inspired by nature.

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!
