Grammy Award nomination - Best Orchestral Performance, 2016

"Not only is it a tantalizing programme, at more than 80 minutes playing time it’s also a very generous one ... it’s high time someone revisited this entertaining repertoire ... (the recording) has ample weight and presence ... it's very analytical, which adds a degree of coolness to the mix ... conductor and orchestra fit together like the precisely machined cogs in a Swiss timepiece ... the recording handles the music’s dynamic swings with ease and there’s a thrilling heft to the sound ... seriously good sonics."
- MusicWeb International

Neeme Järvi and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande continue to explore French orchestral music on this fourth album, containing a merry collection from the best of the vigorously ebullient music of Jacques Ibert, a winner of the famous Prix de Rome. His characteristically clear orchestration is emphasized by strong melodic lines and supported by lively ostinato patterns in the bass. At the same time, the programme reveals what an eclectic composer Ibert was. The contrast between his two best known pieces is a perfect example: the Divertissement for small orchestra is lighthearted, even frivolous, while the Escales is a ripely romantic work for large orchestra. Like the previous recordings in this series, the unique acoustic of Geneva’s Victoria Hall has been perfectly captured.

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!
