“For those who don’t already own these recordings, suffice it to say that each performance is one of the greatest ever on disc... I know no other recording [of Pelléas et Mélisande] that manages throughout to maintain the fascination of this one.”
- Richard A. Kaplan, Fanfare

This digitally remastered release from Jube Classic sees legendary British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham lead the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in an all-Sibelius programme. Renowned for introducing works by Strauss, Delius, and Sibelius himself to Britain during the 20th century, this release brings together recordings from 1955 of the tone poem The Oceanides, the Symphony No. 7 in C Major, and the highlight of this album, the exquisite Pelléas and Mélisande Suite, originally composed as incidental music for Maurice Maeterlinck's symbolist play of the same title.

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!
