"Four Stars ... (the Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra is) a fine sounding ensemble with textured strings, luminous woodwinds, tight brass and admirable subtlety across all sections. Lindberg nails the tricky contrasts and nuances ... a worthy revival, very well executed."
- Classic FM

"... these recognizably Norwegian works offer plenty of appealing inspiration ... (Asgaardsreien) is the highlight of the disc. Its 10 minutes pass by in a blur of colour and excitement and its conclusion is thrilling. The Trombone Concerto is so pleasant that you may forget that you are listening to a trombone concerto ... the performances here are excellent: as vivid and vital as the music itself."
- ClassicsToday.com

The colourful music of fascinating composer Ole Olsen is portrayed here in the first recording by what must surely be the northernmost of symphony orchestras, the Arctic Philharmonic. The orchestra’s flamboyant chief conductor, Christian Lindberg, also appears as virtuoso trombone soloist on the world premiere of Olsen’s Concerto for Tenor Trombone and Orchestra, written in 1886. A contemporary of Grieg and Svendsen, Olsen regarded himself as holding third place among Norway’s musical elite.

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!
