"Chris Rouse is one of the most important composers working today. He shapes the sound and the emotional flow of his music in a way that only great composers can ... his music is very telling and thoughtful about the human condition in a way that is fairly unique today."
- Alan Gilbert

This album presents four world premiere recordings of works by Christopher Rouse, the New York Philharmonic’s composer-in-residence. Three of these pieces were written for the orchestra's conductor, Alan Gilbert: taken together, the Fourth Symphony, Prospero’s Rooms and Odna Zhizn bear witness to a remarkable period of artistic collaboration between the legendary orchestra, its celebrated music director and one of today’s most evocative American composers.

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!
