"Four Stars ... Kalmar and company cast it beautifully in sumptuous sound. Who knew Oregon could sound like this? PentaTone should hold on to this bunch as long as they can and explore as much repertory as they can handle. Great sound, performances and production!"
- Audiophile Audition

"This is a disc of no little distinction. Throughout the performances the playing is excellent and Kalmar conducts all three works with understanding and flair. The sound is very good indeed ... a wealth of detail is brought out and the sound certainly shows this orchestra off to best advantage ..."

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!
