"the entire package is unusually interesting and uniformly desirable, which is unusual given the wide-ranging variety of music on offer. Sonically this is as fine as anything BIS has given us from Lahti, which is to say that it's on par with the best the industry has to offer."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Overall this is a very attractive collection made up entirely of rarities. While the true esoterica (Overture and Cantata) are not earth-shattering events they are welcome novelties and we must hope for more... and soon."
- MusicWeb International

This collection of works by Sibeleius, as performed by Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä and his Lahti Orchestra, takes the listener on a musical journey through a folkloric history of Finland. Featuring the Jubilate Choir, a highlight of this release is the 'tone poem with words' entitled Snöfrid, a setting of a ballad-like poem by Viktor Rydberg, which is paired with other little-known gems such as Oma Maa (My Country).

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!
